Titi Greetings

01 Sep 2016 5 4 225
Everyday this summer in Bretagne Pierre had a walk on the rocky beaches of Plougrescant; I could not walk there with him and stayed on our terrace; I had everyday the visit of a robin that I named Titi coming to speak with me in a repetitive ritual; It arrived allways at the first step on the terrace entry then always made a kind of reverence making first a funny genuflexion to say hello; Then it always approached me staying often in front of my face very near even without little pieces of bread to attract it and a long discuss began; One day it even enter our home and tried a fligh on the TV near the ceiling to have a good view on our dining-room table; It was not at all afraid when other little birds escaped quickly on our approach; My poor Titi appeared one day of ending August in poor conditions having lost an important part of its neck feathers, probably attacked by a jalous bigger bird or by a cat and we never saw him again as probably killed; I use its lovely image and its voice to wish You an Happy New Year 2017!
