Flashback 2012 – Prayed for snowfall on Oregon grape this Monday, January 16th.
Then I saw lots of lovely birds at lunch and on my way home. Here is an awesome seagull visiting the ponds. It was watching ducks being fed then took off in disappointment when no food was shared. I was taking pictures and other people were doing the feeding. Even though seagulls are the state bird, many times people are mean and don’t like them. I love them.
Starlings are very shy and don’t let people get too close, because people are often mean to them, also. I love them, though, and think they are beautiful and entertaining. I love all the little birds that lots of people don’t seem to enjoy.
I was lucky to be able to get this kestrel in a tree on my way home. People enjoy kestrels in the city now more than they used to. In the past they were killed as pests and a threat to chickens (though if you saw how tiny these guys are you’d wonder how people thought that).
