The Photo Meditation of the Month (April, 2011): BIRDS

There's a saying, "Birds of a feather flock together." That means the same type of birds stay and do everything together.

The above photo shows how pigeons are jostling for food given by a bystander in the College Park, Toronto. Some visitors in the park throw food items at birds and squirrels.

They are a beauty to observe -- how birds interact with each other, how they feed baby birds, and how they fly together. Their unity, their sociability and their innocence have something to teach us humans, who, even being of the same ethnic group, have difficulty in interacting with each other and living peacefully.
