I came upon this quote from US psychologist Eric Berne the other day - 'The moment a little boy is concerned with which is a jay and which is a sparrow, he can no longer see the birds or hear them sing'. Interesting, but in my opinion, utter rubbish. The pursuit of identification does not extinguish noticing and celebrating the poetry within birds. LJ, 15 August 2014.
