Ojārs Vācietis and birds
"Every proper person needs to have knowledge about biology at least at the level of a university course," Vācietis once said.
Early in 1960, Ojārs Vācietis and his wife, Ludmila Azarova, moved into their new home at Lielā Altonavas Street 19. They did not enter the building at first, instead walking through the snowy yard. In a berry bush they spotted four robins, and they took it as a sign to say that they were there for good.
