First, Dillard recollects the moment she became entranced with David Rahm’s performance at the air show. It was at the moment when Rahm took the 1930’s Black Bucker Jungman on a drop, sending the plane spinning back and forth through the air that she had become enticed. With full attention on Rahm’s performance, Dillard watched as he elegantly maneuvered the aircraft in a line making loops and arabesques along the way. Staring above in amazement, Dillard was able to compare this vision to the talent of Saul Steinberg, a
In the afternoon hush the volume of sound was startling. Winston and Julia slung together, fascinated. The music went on and on, minute and minute, with astonishing variations, never once repeating itself, almost as though the bird were deliberately showing off its virtuosity. Sometimes it stopped for a few seconds, spread out and resettled its wings, then swelled its speckled breast and again burst into song. Winston watched it with a sort of vague reverence.
Bird feeders often are useful for bird watching which has been a tradition in many places; it provides people with wonderful opportunities for close viewing of birds. One of the most popular bird feeders types in the market is the hopper feeder, which is a platform that has walls and a roof, forming a hopper that
He appeal to the emotion of sympathy for the bird as she tirelessly soar and wait for the captured. This shows that the birds have emotion and real connection for each other unlike anything a machine can have. This emotional connection between the birds is what makes machines different from real life. With ethos, Eiseley is able to showcase how birds possess emotion and how important that emotion. Eiseley uses juxtaposition in order to help show the differences between life and machine.
In descriptive passages, Audubon and Dillard both describe large flocks of birds in flight, Dillard artistically pondering how exhilarating and beautiful these creatures are while Audubon observes them scientifically taking note as they fly over him. Dillard uses an artistic approach to her observations, describing the flying birds a “flight extended like a fluttering banner, an unfurled oriflamme”. Her metaphors constructs to her artistic point of view and letting on know she is taking this sight as a spiritual experience rather then a scientific observation. Dillard gives the birds an overview like if they were magnificent creatures and appreciating a simple pleasure one may take for granted. She ends the passage describing

There is no general difference between Seoul and New York, cities with tall buildings and crowded streets. The way of thinking also changed immensely due to airplanes. To take an example, people are getting out of a big frog in a little pond. Providing opportunities to take their way out abroad and to see what has been happening outside, airplanes made people think about matters from not only the national view but the global view. Human beings are exchanging more and more thoughts and cultures everyday with advance of the airplane.
The term "flapper" refers to the idea that they are young birds "flapping" their wings, referencing their young age and "young" idea, and their loose clothing symbolized freedom from constraints from society. Flappers were young, independent, brash, and sometimes more than a little bit "naughty", at least compared to what their family back on the farm expected. The attitude of a flapper was characterized by stark truthfulness, fast living, and sexual behavior. Flappers seemed to cling to youth as if it were to leave them at any moment. They took risks and were reckless.
As we consider these fascinating facts, we should think how we can adopt the five principles presented in “The Wisdom of Silly Geese Story” as inspiration into practice our own leadership style and teamwork skill. The First Lesson from Geese The First Fact: Geese flying in V formation add at least 71% greater flying range to the whole flock than if each bird flew on its own. This is because as each bird flaps its wing, it creates uplift for the bird immediately following it. The First Lesson: We Can Learn About The Importance Of Achieving Goal. People who work together (sense of community) and share common direction can get where they are going more quickly and easily because they are travelling on thrust of one another.
A second metaphoric image is of the patches of blue sky through the clouds: “There were patches of blue sky showing here and there through the clouds” (66). This image represents finding reason to be hopeful through adversity. Just as Mr. Mallard’s untimely death will present difficulty there is reason for Mrs. Mallard to be optimistic. The metaphor continues with Mrs. Mallard seeing the sparrows: “countless sparrows were twittering in the eaves.” (66). The sparrows represent freedom as they are able to fly away, just as Mrs. Mallard is now free to live for herself.
