Judgmental Birds
Topic: Birds

Judgmental Birds

Maybe Hitchcock was onto something, although the story was from Daphne Du Maurier and the screenplay by Evan Hunter. These birds, at the Playa del Rey lagoon on 12 December, seem to know something. Think of them as a jury. They may not like us at all.

Swans
Topic: Birds

Swans

Swans at the Self-Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine, 17190 Sunset Boulevard, Pacific Palisades, California, just up the hill from Pacific Coast Highway, at the edge of Malibu. It was established by Paramahansa Yogananda and opened on August 20, 1950 - a ten-acre site, with gardens and natural spring-fed lake, with swans, ducks, koi, and lotus flowers everywhere.
