The Silver Lining of the Covid-19 Pandemic: Nature’s Reclamation of Urban Scape 

Short Description: 

Normally, bird sightings are few and far between in the vicinity of a busy college football stadium; however, with the pandemic-induced lockdowns over the last year, nature’s reemergence in urban settings has been the silver lining of an otherwise unprecedented period marked by shrouded darkness and deep sorrow.


The brown finch perched on the branches of a tree is symbolic of the hope that people have in store for the spring. Moreover, it symbolizes nature’s versatility and ability to evolve and adapt to any facet of life.
