The Places of St. Francis
"...and he came to Cannaia and Bevagna. And passing on with that fervor, he raised his eyes and saw some trees beside the road, on which there was almost an infinite multitude of birds. And he entered the field and began to preach to the birds that were on the ground; and immediately those that were on the trees came to him together all of them and stood still, while Saint Francis completed his preaching."
