Paris Post 2 = Birdman of Paris.



There was this chappie, with a bag of bird seed on his shoulder, just standing there with seed ect in his hands.

The birds were flocking to him, as he just stood there, they were very tame and seemed to know him, as other people were trying but the birds were not having any of it with other people.

We stood and watched for about half an hour as I took a few photos of him.

Great photos! But I think that would have freaked me out to have that many birds on me, too much like that movie the Birds. But I love the photos!

What fabulous photos! I will have to show these to my DH... he has a passion for feeding little critters and birds. One of his favorite photos of himself I took while we were in London. We sat down for a spell on a bench in Hyde Park. DH had some crackers left over from lunch, and with a little patience, he had birds on his hand. Thank you for jogging my memory of that special day (what made it so special, in a silly way, was that they were ENGLISH birds, and not American ones)!

This man has his birds, my father has his deer :) Those are great photos of him, he seems like he's hardly aware of a camera at all!

Now that is amazing. He has a very special gift, bird food or not

Very nice! He's like the birdman of Alcatraz.

Excellent capture of the birds in flight while feeding.
