When I was young I used to be scared of Pigeons, maybe because a family member who will remain nameless (;0)… scattered bird seeds onto the top of my head in the middle of Trafalgar Square; where half of the world’s pigeons ‘hang out’, and my skull got pecked to buggery by about 15 of the swine’s!
Anyhoo, now that I’m a big girl, I’m kinda in love with birds, and in particular…Pigeons
1. I love the way they shoot their heads back and forth (horizontal like) when they walk around
2. When I look at the skinny-ness of their legs, I’m baffled at the miracle that is –
‘A pigeon walking’…
How those little sticks support the weight of their well rounded selves, I just don’t know!
3. Their beady little eyes come in 3rd
And that is pretty much it…Not a lot to go on, but these 3 little things make me love them. I often stop in the street to watch in wonderment, if I see one strutting his/her stuff! Check out this little chap in action, and next time you’re in need of witnessing a miracle…Remember to look at those matchstick legs and the rules of physics and mass! They defy all logic, which renders their ability to walk, firmly in the ‘magical and miraculous’ arena of life
Just a thought – Maybe their legs are prone to successfully holding them up, because they are knee-less!
Upon further inspection, it looks like they have knees in their upper thighs! Go Figure 😉
