The Local Bird

Back home we have seagulls, nice to look at but otherwise trash birds. In Uruguay there was pigeons everywhere, no need to discuss them.

In Colombo on the other hand we don't have pretty tropical songbirds. We have big nasty blackbirds. Menacing, ugly, sound awful.

Sometimes they perch on my railing and just "CAW CAW CAW!!!" and I want to throw something at them.
