Melting snow creates puddles of water everywhere I go, and Ms.Seagull seems to be taking advantage of these natural mirrors to admire her pretty self. Aren’t you just lovely?
We start off the month of December with some good ol’ pigeons chilling in Place Pey Berland in downtown Bordeaux. It was a cold day, but one with sun and clear skies, making it a quite pleasant day to be outside if you dressed warm enough. Just an observation though: pigeons in Bordeaux have gotten much bigger (I like to use the word “enriched” to be euphemistic) within the past two years. They’re almost comparable to the ones in Paris…has the pigeon food supply in Bordeaux somehow increased?
As I was waiting for the GO train at Danforth station today, I noticed a row of birds lined up at the top of a high-rise apartment building. It reminded me of one of chef’s paintings 😉
Since Sherry’s flight was to arrive at 7:05 in the morning, I had to be at the airport bright and early, resulting in the opportunity to see the first ever sunrise in my life. Non-stop flocks of birds flew by shortly after the sun has shown itself, group after group. It was quite a sight.
On the way to Amsterdam, friend and I made a short detour to Kinderdijk, one of the windmill sites in the Netherlands, near Rotterdam. It was early morning, and these birds were observing the tourists from the waterside.
