After yesterday’s post about graffiti pets and other animals, I thought it was high time to show you the local wildlife in Barcelona, which, as in most cities is mostly of the birdie variety (but also counts fish, here and there)…
… and has an abundance of pigeons, those cooing, poo-ing birds of a grey feather.
Much cuter, cheekier and noisier, are the cotorras (an Argentinian variety of parakeet) who roam the skies and make their homes (mostly) in Barcelona’s palm trees. They always bring a smile to my face.
But the big stars in Barcelona – mainly because they rule supreme in the skies and are so very predatory (they kill pigeons in mid-flight, did you know?) and also because they are such posers – are the seagulls.
See what I mean with the posing (after chasing away a couple of blackbirds and charming a couple of Japanese tourists)?
Heck, they even do it in mid-flight! ;)
