I don’t bird watch. I don’t know if birds of a feather actually do flock together. But, I do know that birds that hang out together certainly learn from each other. Birds learn what they know and they learn who they are from those around them. Even if the birds did not start off the same, they soon become similar. So watch the associations you make and keep. Spend your time with people who support you, people you want to learn from, and people who will help you grow into someone who will fly.
