Birds, Muir

As well as grand stones, grand trees, and grand flowers there are grand birds. There are birds like you would see at your own bird feeder robins, jays. Geese try to fly over the stone faces of Yosemite but have some trouble. "Yosemite magnitudes seem to be as deceptive to geese as to men, for after circling to a considerable height and forming regular harrow-shaped ranks they would suddenly find themselves in danger of being dashed against the face of the cliff, much nearer the bottom that the top" (161). Muir talkes about a pair of rare golden eagles that lived in the valley. I hope they or their decedents still live in the valley but think it unlikely. Surprisingly the bird life in Yosemite is much the same as elsewhere, with the exception of the golden eagles.
