Man!! Those are some kind of clouds. I love it when the single bird is perched atop the lamp post like that!! The silhouette is terrific. TGIF

wv: nesti - maybe the bird is scouting out a new place to put his

It makes me wonder if birds pause to take in beauty.

I'm wondering when you took this. I haven't had any clouds lately.

Did you see the one I did a few posts back with a bird?

This is a great photo, LA. I'd pull up "Bird on a Wire" by Leonard Cohen, but I'm too lazy.

Yesterday, I saw three pigeons standing in the middle of the street in Alhambra. They did not budge when I drove past them. The were not eating anything, or moving around, just standing. I watched them in by rear-view mirror for a couple blocks and they didn't budge. I wondered if they were really pigeons or statues, and whether this was a psychological test to see if drivers would drive at them or go around them. It was very strange.

Something's up, Mr. Earl. When I went out to get the paper this morning there was a crow standing on the neighbor's front lawn. When I went out a few minutes later, he was still standing there.

What do they know that we don't know? Is there an earthquake about to happen? Is Alfred Hitchcock returning with "The Birds?" What's the answer to this mystery?

Hmmmm, we've had a crow hangin' out and stalking our kitties...

I'm thinkin'...the birds are coming!!! the birds are coming!!!

You guys are freaking me out!!!

The other day at The Huntington, two geese were sleeping in the middle of a fairly busy walkway. Hmmmm....

Oh, and Shanna... this was taken a while ago. Perhaps back as far as January? I just hadn't posted it yet. Actually, I forgot about it and rediscovered it when I was going through files.
