Now the morning wakes
to a silent chorus
bird song gone
the blackbird
sits
quietly
alone
without a care
while
just one
pigeon
in some far off tree
barely heard now
breaks into a moan ~ Gill McGrath© August 15

[ a silence fills the  first  morning air  now that territorial lines are less defined and bird families are mostly grown… although they still gather in large numbers all day, for the fast food waiting for them at their usual eating places]

why do pigeons moan?

  1. My first thought on seeing the photo of the “blackbird” was “crow” as we have millions of them in my part of town…. but after checking with Wikipedia I see they are actually two distinctly different birds.. the blackbird is much smaller than a crow…. which is obviously why four and twenty of them would fit into a pie!
