This week's prompt for Our Beautiful World is Bird, a word chosen by Kirsty  of  Handmade Little Things.
To tell you the truth I hadn't recently taken any photos of birds and we hadn't been some place to see birds. So what did I do?
I simply took some photos of the birds that come down into our school playground just after the children's break to eat their leftovers.
It's amazing how many types of birds come every day.Usually they are pigeons, doves,seagulls and sparrows.

Then I took some photos of some birds I saw one morning during my sea front walk with Barca!

 And then I just looked around me in my flat and realised how many beautiful birds I have!
This swan painting by my sea glass friend Ian in England,
and this swan cross stitch I had made as a kid. (sorry it's blurred)
And all those Geninne Zlatkis birds in my bedroom!

And another stitched piece!
And the ducks for February for the Joyful World of the Snowflower Diaries SAL that I am taking part in!
And more birds around!

 I love birds!
Ever since I was a kid and a neighbour painted birds for me with just one line with her pencil! I just wish I had some of those now! It looked a bit like this but the bird was looking straight ahead. (found here)

Link your blog with a a blogpost about birds or anything that has to do with them in Our Beautiful World.

I love to see all of you birds. I especially like the dark colored seagull you photographed. We do not have this kind near where I live. I am always interested in seabirds from all over the world.

Έτσι τα πουλιά να τα καμαρώνουμε στα κάδρα και στη φύση, ποτέ σε κλουβιά. Δεν πρέπει να αγοράζουμε πουλιά.
