I have always thought...

white birds
I have always thought that stars turn into white birds in the morning light
& sleep with their heads under their wings
until the dusk begins to walk through the streets.

Crested Pigeon


Crested pigeon keeping a very close eye on me at Stony Point, Westernport Bay, Mornington Peninsula.
I rarely see this bird, though it is supposed to be found throughout Australia.
In flight, its wings create a whistling sound.

I remember the first time I ever saw one of these - I though "its so strange it must be rare" - wrong!

Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW.
