Les Oiseaux Familiers





One evening I dined alone at Ma Bourgogne at the Place des Vosges.  As I enjoyed mon apéritif,  I had several little friends join me. They didn't seem a bit intimidated by my camera!

These are 'moineau' which we know as sparrows. This is a female house sparrow.

Don't you love these little guys? I call them the clean-up crew. :-)

I don't think your camera would bother anyone - you can take my picture anytime! But that birdie is so adorable and I love the texture of the chair beneath the bird - as if perched on a branch, but in Paris of course it has to be a bistro chair outside!
