Pigeons and Sparrows

A pigeon enjoying some sort of berries in the Majorelle Gardens.

Free pickings for sparrows in Essouira.
No need to go foraging for yourself when the shop keeper has kindly opened his sacks for you.

Birds enjoy eating seeds on our roof .
We have to be rather careful that the cats aren't hanging around at the same time.
This can have disastrous results.
Mimi is an excellent huntress.

Hello Elizabeth.. what lovely pictures you always post :) I loved those Donkey carts.
Realised I forgot about the day of doors but hope that the doors of my housetrucks might have sufficed :)

Birds of all kinds everywhere are wonderful to watch. A seagull visited our kindergarten building this morning, having taken the 10 mile flight from the beach. The kids were enthralled even though seagulls are a common sight around here.

Hi Elizabeth,
Nice pix of the birdies. I have a special affection for birds in a symbolic way since my father died.
OH YES best to keep Mimi and the gang in their own kitty cafe, whist feeding the birds. Hope all is well in the big apple with you!!

The one of those sparrows on the grain sacks is priceless - guess its a common occurence?

I like the colours, nice pics

this is my patch said...

I love to have birds around the place. I think you just have to hope for the best when cats are around. Hopefully you are able to enjoy both. x

I love those little reddish-brown birds. When i am Morocco staying with friends, the first thing i hear before waking up in the morning are the little red-brown birds. They fly down through the opening and land on the table and eat bread crumbs in the morning! Pat
