Margaret Morse Nice
“I decided it would be better to be a bird. Birds are very busy at one period each year caring for babies, but this lasts only a few weeks with many of them, and then their babies are grown and gone. Best of all, they leave their houses forever and take to camping for the rest of the year. No wonder they are happy.”
“Research is a passion with me; it drives me; it is my relentless master.”
Margaret Morse Nice, U.S. ornithologist
(1883 - 1974)
