beach from Oshawa, Ontario, Canada

Nice shot of the birds gathering around the "water-cooler" to gossip. I wonder if the stone birds contribute anything to the conversation.

20 Aug 2017 5:46pm

@beach: ha ha Beach. They must be actually witches pretending to be clay birds and must be listening to all the gossips !!!!:)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))) I have an incorrigible imagination...may be because I am still a child at heart and to this day my most loved book is Alice in Wonderland !
