Hi again Dowrgi. I have bought and read the book and loved The Festival of the Birds and in particular the role of the Robin red breast with Christ The robin is a significant bird to me and usually it symbolises messages from the spirit world. When I was in hospital three years ago I had a downstairs room with windows that opened at the bottom to form a narrow aperture, one day I was sitting on my hospital bed when a robin flew in through the window and perched on the desk in front of the bed and sat looking at me. He stayed there for about a minute then suddenly took off back through the window. I saw it as a sign from the spirit world that all would be well and I would be out of hospital soon which was the case.
