Creature of the Day #2146

These little black birds were such an important part of my time at SF State – it makes me so happy to see them again now. I keep stopping in the street, kneeling close, whenever I happen by a bird, just to admire it for a moment.

I feel, oddly, like I’ve been getting better at seeing birds recently. Not in the sense that my eyes are better, but I’m somehow noticing more about them – their little motions, the steps they take, the frills in their feathers. It makes it seem, in comparison, like I hardly saw them at all when I was younger.

Watching them move, it’s hard to believe that it took so long for people to realize they were dinosaurs.
