I heard the birds screeching as I turned the corner and there they were.

  2. Birds love countries were the wires are still in the air and not under the ground. Nice observation Bill.

  3. Yes, they always have a lot to tell each other! They often use the wires here too for a meeting.

  8. Bird On The Wire - Poem by Leonard Cohen

    Like a bird on the wire,
    like a drunk in a midnight choir
    I have tried in my way to be free.
    Like a worm on a hook,
    like a knight from some old fashioned book
    I have saved all my ribbons for thee.
    If I, if I have been unkind,
    I hope that you can just let it go by.
    If I, if I have been untrue
    I hope you know it was never to you.
    Leonard Cohen

  11. What did you do to them? Maybe their screeching was due to that big bird just above them?

  12. Thanks to Kate for posting the words to Birds on a Wire..... Leonard Cohen is (sadly was) one of my heros. Birds always sit far enough apart so that they can spread their wings when someone gives the signal to fly.

  15. Makes me think of that Leonard Cohen song - like a bird on a wire I have tried in my way to be free.
