Birds On A Wire

I often see a lot of birds sitting on this particular run of wires and they always seem to be spaced out quite evenly like this. I guess birds have the same sense of personal space as humans!

Maybe they are more civilized than us. ;-)

I wonder if they're wired to sing at that particular spot?

Sharon said...

Ha! I never thought of it that way. You must be right.

I've noticed that before too. Along I-5 there are always hawks on the wires and they are perfectly evenly spaced too...but a lot further apart than the little guys (I suppose it's a hunting territory for them), but it must just be a sense of space for the smaller ones..

Enough room to stretch the wings!

there are some wires that the birds seem particularly attracted to and I often wonder why.

Wow that's neat!

Some kind of law of diminishing attraction going on here, I think. Very few on the second wire, and the third wire had three birds but one is flying away.
Interesting topic for someone's thesis in Electrical Engineering.

Starlings - they flock together in winter, though from your pic they still like their own space.

I've never noticed that before. What a kick.

They must need a certain space in order to fly off.

I hate it when someone stands just a bit too close when we talk. Unless she is pretty.

I love it.

If I was 12 again... and had my trusty Daisy air rifle... ah, maybe I shouldn't be bringing this up. hahahaha
I got in my share of trouble.

It would be good if some people were as considerate space wise Pat, nice line up here!

Alfred Hitchcock type scene!

Funny how all animals seem to like their space. Cute catch!

Marleen said...

Love it!

Gringo said...

Yes, amazing, and some even get relegated to the 'naughty seats' below!
Have a good week Red Pat!

Electric birds! :-)

I imagine it's a good high perch in the heart of their territory... and they do tend to be very social animals.
