"Subirdia is the geography of life"

To me, the suburb is neither the geography of nowhere nor the ecological desert unworthy of conservation about which I've read. Pieces of paradise have been paved, but it is not entirely a parking lot. What has been created is fully stocked with a wonderful diversity of bird life that is fragile, though sustainable. Subirdia is the geography of life.
