Birds and blasts

.

Missiles, mortars, and rockets are not the only things falling from our sky.

I wonder if a pigeon can get a heart attack from hearing too many Red Alert sirens and feeling explosions in the sky.

UPDATE July 24:
Look at this! An owl was hit by a mortar is being treated for shrapnel wounds!

Poor little bird. Here, when fireworks are set off like on the 4th, there have been some large bird kills reported. Rockets are probably even worse for this.

Probably. Not great for the humans, either...

Dina - You, and everyone in the land is in our hearts and thoughts every hour. May angels keep you safe.

At least IDF soldiers have the dignity of risking and giving their lives for somethings 100% worthy. US soldiers in some no-where piece of rock in Afghanistan are the height of sin absurdity. Shalom

It must not be easy to keep your sanity. Wishing peace in the whole region!

Yes, I guess they can. No matter where they are.

Here we had one bird who just banged in to the window.
HOT, and not even the birds are used to it:)

So there is a good side even in all this!

With the kids here, we've not been able to keep up with the news as much. It's mind boggling to see how horrible the situation is now in your area.

Symbolic, if it were a dove. Stay safe. Nothing more to say or do, except pray for you all.

Why do I find it harder to accept the harm to the innocent birds? We are all birds. Prayers for you all Dina...<3

Kate said...

Not a peaceful time for humans or animals.

Eleanor Jones said...

Poor thing. Hope you are safe.

Frank said...

A very tough time for everyone. Stay safe.

Pat said...

Poor pigeon. I guess it represents the wildlife that is also affected by conflict.
Hoping for the best resolution to the strife in your land. Stay safe.
