Mr. Imagination, who is my nature-loving, scientific sort of child, spent a couple of weeks recently taking photos of all the birds he could see around here. This wood pigeon posed for him on top of the electric pole.
One morning he was very excited to see a baby plover in front of the house! I could hardly believe it, since it was a month earlier than they hatched last year, but he was right!
A couple of thrushes of some sort.
A blackbird on the neighbor’s rooftop.
One of the adult plovers.
The thrush again.
There’s the baby plover again!
And a picture of it with one of the parents. That baby was the star of the show that day! It was a bit difficult to keep attention focused on school books.
