“Indomitable spirit”

I love this quote about one of my favorite birds, the chickadee:

“We learned to be patient observers like the owl. We learned cleverness from the crow, and courage from the jay, who will attack an owl ten times its size to drive it off its territory. But above all of them ranked the chickadee, because of its indomitable spirit.”

—Tom Brown, Jr. (Native American elder and naturalist, b. 1950)
