Everglades Valentines (& Yellowstone)

Watching the animals, even the birds, you’d think they have to potential to feel love just as we humans do. On this day I thought I’d share a couple of moments when I watched birds that seemed to communicate a deep affection.

  1. They definitely do show affection and I shot a couple of Rock Doves (or Rock Pigeons – they seem to go by both names) on the warehouse roof opposite my 3rd floor apartment today. They seem to ‘kiss & cuddle’, groom feathers, peck necks and a whole lot more.
    The warehouse roof next door is the scene of many a ‘love affair’ and I’ve got many series of images to proof it, let alone the Ducks at the Botanic Gardens or the many birds at Melbourne Zoo’s great aviary. I love the way mother ducks tend to their young (including chiding them severely if a young duckling falls behind the row of ducklings walking along the edge of a pond).

  2. Nomad, I’m in Tel Aviv for a couple of weeks and may have a couple of free Saturdays. Any suggestions for Jerusalem or other places for a quick day tour? On Feb 14, 2016 7:39 AM, “nomadruss in words and photos” wrote:

    • I’d go to Mea Sharim, the Orthodox neighborhood in Jerusalem and to Machane Yehuda Market, it’s a great cultural scene. The Holocaust Museum is the best museum (poignantly) I’ve ever been too.
