“What has been made so clear to me it that so many of the
decisions I make in my daily life affect their survival. What I plant in my
yard, what coffee I buy, what I put down the drain or into the atmosphere, or
where I let my dog or cat wander – all of this matters. A lot….It was only after
making the first photograph of a nest, drawn to its palette and messy, yet
graceful and functional form, that I knew I had found my medium – or at least a
way that I could be a medium for the birds.” Sharon Beals
