Conference of Birds

This month's Adventures in Literary Allusion brings us Conference of Birds by Farid ud-din Attar. We'll leave discussion of what this has to do with Harbor for our discussion on Sunday. Meanwhile, the title alone just makes me smile with the images it conjures up. I picture the United Nations General Assembly populated with feathered friends. Surely there are illustrated versions. From tidbits here, the tales are wise and amusing at the same time.
