At 08 00 I was out with Cai in front of our building, and heard a nice chorus of Starlings. I know they’re an invasive (in the corporate world, it would be called “successful”) species, but their merry chuckles, whistles, and cat imitations bring a smile to the dark winter months.
Anyway, there they were, on the tip of a crane: today’s post, there for the taking.
I brought Cai back in. Attaching the long lens to the camera, I had the presence of mind to climb the floors (there are six) of our building rather than return to the ground. At each railing, however, I found fewer birds, and surrounding buildings got in the way as well. Today’s snapshot, then, was taken from the third floor.
At 08 23 I was out with Fergus in front of our building, and there was only one Starling left.
