An intimate look at Baby Jesus' welcome into the world, told from the loving perspective of a flock of mother birds.
"The mother birds
Like gentle words
Took wing one wintry day."
Through sun and rain, across mountains and plains, a flock of mother birds journey on, growing in number and determination. A yearly migration? Yes, but so much more.
Landing at last, the mother birds gather leaves and feathers as they prepare an offering for a very special birthday. Their gift? A soft, downy bed and a loving welcome for the newborn King - baby Jesus!
