City park 2/1. ( part 1) ;

Yesterday, my husband needed to do some errands close the city park.  I asked him to drop me off wondering if there might be migrating birds in the lake there. Happy to see the sea-gulls and coots with the commonly seen ones (ducks. sparrows etc). 
As it was Sunday, there were some people visiting as well, despite the bit cold weather. 
            
*Wishing you might be able to enjoy the atmosphere*
The sign said 'the island of swan'.
As my old friends may know, they were all gone (killed) because of the bird flu.



Especially, these two cast eyes for me and greeted me p:-)


 *In the Year 1967, 10 Pelicans were sent to my city's park's lake from Calcutta, India*

Pelicans were having feeding time from the lady staff.  First two pictures were from the post last year ,  in the post I explained about the "Pelican Island" and "Cutta-kun".
























*And found the sparrows and wagtails*




Thank you very much for riding the tour in our city park.

Oi Miyako, lindas as fotos do parque! Eu nunca vi pelicanos, apenas por fotos e TV!
Beijos, linda semana.

It's nice to see an organized feeding of the birds at the park. I had heard of bird flu, but didn't know where it was or how bad it affected any specific bird. I hope the swans will make a come back- they are so lovely to watch. Thanks for sharing your visit to the park!

Miyako, such a lovely spot, even if it was a bit chilly. So sad for the swans to be gone, they are so beautiful. But the bird pictures you posted are great. Thanks for sharing. Hugs from Texas!

Hi Miyako san. Your photos are all so beautiful! What lovely birds. I especially love the ones where pelicans are getting meal. They look so cute opening their mouth big :-) And I always love seeing sparrows. In my hometown, I saw them, lot of them, every day!

Have a wonderful week, Miyako san. And happy Setsubun!

Hello Miyako,
We both like to wander around taking photos while waiting for our husbands I've found!! A great way to wait ;D)
Your photos are so beautiful, and it was a shame how the bird flu took its toll in that way.
The park is such a lovely place to spend time. I love the landscaping too.
A lot of birds visit don't they.
Thank you for sharing it all with us :D)

It's so much fun visiting your park through your pictures. It was as entertaining as going there myself.
