“I have no desire to crow over anybody or to see anybody eating crow, figuratively or otherwise. We should all get together and make a country in which everybody can eat turkey whenever he pleases.” —Harry S. Truman
This week’s challenge on Susan and my alternate site, Weekly Prompts, was the phrase “FOR THE BIRDS“.
Last summer when I featured this particular lamp top the sea gulls ruled the roost. On many occasions I noticed that one or two shared the top which they defended to the best of their ability. Squadrons of gulls continually flew above and around the site.
This year the crows have taken over the site and they are equally as protective and more vocal than the other birds in the area. Thy are definitely territorial and have hunkered down there for the coming summer season.
The purpose of this challenge was to test readers’ ability to photograph the outward character and individual personality birds actually possess.
I propose this challenge to you: when you are out and about either walking or driving take a peek at the tops of your own lamp posts and discover if some birds favor dining out there.
You might be surprised at what you discover and learn about the birds in your own neighborhood.
