The traditional Korean lullaby ‘Bird, Bird, Blue Bird’ is a song of hope in a time of great uncertainty. The lyrics of the song connect human vulnerability with the common fate of other species, especially birds.  Offered here as a metaphor of connection between humans and other species birds, the song reminds us that all species are vulnerable to climate change.
