Weekly Photo Challenge : Community

We are a community, we fly, we swoop, we flutter, we glide, through the traffic and over the heads of the people walking around the square, almost touching but not quite. we pick up the scraps, we spot them with our eagle eyes…and some people even come especially to feed us, bringing us old scraps of bread and seeds in their shopping bags.


Even if the humans don’t feed us, they throw away their fast food cartons and rubbish, still with some food left inside, and we are happy and full by the end of the day. We are city birds, we perch on window ledges and roofs, unlike our cousins who like to live by the sea and perch on clifftops.   But no matter where we are, we stick together and look out for each other, just like a good community.

    Aha, nice thinking Joan! Seems like many of the cousins are moving into town these days though.



I would love to hear what you think!
