"‘NO WINGBEAT, NO HEARTBEAT, NO FREEDOM, NO LIFE’—A CAGED BIRD’S LAMENT Peregrine falcons are hunters, the fastest creatures in the world. But when Talon is locked in a cage—his wings stilled forever—his mighty heart and spirit are broken. He bemoans the loss of his wings, crooning the song all caged birds sing. No bird or squirrel anywhere in the world would ever dream of rescuing a falcon. But in the Rose Garden lives a squirrel like no other. Shikar, the squirrel, a kind-hearted creature, is friends with the birds of the garden. His tiny heart bleeds for Talon and the terrible fate that has befallen him. And late one night, Shikar and his bird friends mount a daring rescue attempt."
