Here's a 4,000-year-old heiroglyph from the Temple of Luxor, one of the most important religious sites in ancient Egypt. Birds played an important role in life even way back then.
Fast forward four millennia: on Monday, I saw a couple of Eurasian Kestrels floating on the wind a few yards from the Nile. A very common bird in Eurasia, but I think a lifer for me.
