Where I work at the Grade 0 school (that is the school readiness year) I often go for walks to clear my head and then get back to my work. Just a few meters from my office is a large school field where there is always a frenzy of hungry birds that swoop down onto the grounds after the children have had their break time to feast on the left over dropped food. It is an amusing sight to see, I have seen Pigeons, Crows, Indian mynas, Thrushes, Hadedas and the common little sparrows. It’s an a la carte menu out there for the birds, sandwiches, fruit, biscuits, chips and more, enough food to feed a flock of birds. Mondays always seem to be the busiest eating day as there has been no school over the weekend and obviously the birds start getting a little hungry. It is such a luxury to not have to search for food. I swear, these birds must sit up in the trees around the field waiting for the children to scoot so that they can come to their banqueting table. So think of the poor birds this weekend, 4 days of having to search for their own food, no buffet table laid out for them to feed on.
