115. BIRDS

Needing only miniscule might for incredible flight

* I got the idea for this simple miracle from this New York Times article, describing ongoing research to study how birds fly.
* Even very tiny birds can generate the strength to fly very far. For instance, the NYT article mentions how "the calliope hummingbird weighs only as much as two paper clips, yet it migrates annually between Canada and Mexico."
* This simple miracle makes me think of the doves released by Noah after the flood. It is good that they were able to keep flying in search of dry land.
