BILLING AND COOING
Barranquilla is a city of roughly 2.5 - 3 million people all living on a piece of earth which is roughly 12 -14 miles from north to south and maybe half that distance across. Like every big city...we have our share of pigeons.
My granddaughter was here a couple weekends ago when a pigeon nearly flew into our living room window. It excited and freaked us both out a little bit. Since then, I've seen them flying close to the window several times.
Well...as hubby and I were having coffee a few mornings ago, I kept hearing this noise that reminded me a little of a strong wind...which we have here in abundance. But this sound was in short continuous spurts so I knew it wasn't wind. Plus, I was sitting next to our open window and...well...anyway, it wasn't the wind.
I was reading at the time and after a few minutes of it, I asked hubby if he heard it. He said, "Yeah, it sounds like somebodies washing machine". Well...it didn't sound like that to me.
It hit me all of a sudden that it was the billing and cooing of pigeons and so I went to investigate out our apartment door where the noise was loudest.
Up the stairs...in the hallway...there were these two little love birds just totally enjoying each others company. Until I interrupted that is.
I took two pictures, which they didn't appreciate at all and then left them to it.
They billed and cooed for a couple more days...usually in the morning...but I think one of the neighbors may have chased them off because they haven't been here since.
Am I a little crazy to be a bit disappointed? The thought of all that lovey dovey stuff going on outside our door just made me happy.
