A moment of contemplation on Birchmount

Heading south on the #17 – Birchmount bus, we stopped at Lawrence to wait for the green light. A group of birds suddenly rose as one from the roof of a nearby building and started to slowly wheel in a full circle. When they had come back fully they started to land when suddenly they rose again and in a faster style performed a tighter circle. Again, as one they went to land except that this time 2 of them took off. They flew straight out about 20 feet, wheeled fast and returned. It reminded me of two high school kids who decided to have an impromptu race.

Sometimes I forget that we do have wildlife here. It was very peaceful to watch and wonder.
