” as Markandeya beheld the child, all his weariness vanished. indeed, so great was his pleasure that the lotus of his heart, along with his lotus eyes, fully blossomed and the hairs on his body stood on end. confused as to the identity of the wonderful infant, the sage approached Him: just then the child inhaled, drawing Markandeya within His body like a mosquito. there the sage found the entire universe arrayed as it had been before its dissolution. “

BBC Talking to Strangers: honey birds

These birds are best known for their interaction with humans.

Honeyguides are noted and named for one or two species that will deliberately lead humans directly to bee colonies, so that they can feast on the grubs that are left behind.

(from a BBC series called “Trials of Life” and the episode is called “Talking to Strangers)

Page from a manuscript of the Mantiq al-Tayr (The Language of the Birds) of Farid al-Din cAttar, ca. 1600; Safavid, Iran (Isfahan)

The text on this folio pertains to the hoopoe’s speech in which he proposes that the birds set out on a journey to find the Simurgh. In this illustration, the birds have assembled and listen to the hoopoe at the middle right.
