Davening birds?


This is the spot where I often walk out of Meitar and into Nature.
It was Friday just before sunset, Sabbath Eve, and all these birds were on the wire as if in a long prayer line. 

I approached quietly, slowly, respectfully; but there came a point at which they could no longer abide my presence.
And they took off. 

Shabbat shalom! 

(Linking to Camera Critters and to SkyWatch Friday.)

I think the male birds were waiting in a long line to avoid going home until Shabbat was in. That way the mother birds can take full responsibility for getting the foods ready and the chicks cleaned :)

Hahaha, you're probably right, Hels!
You know, I go out to the "desert" at that same hour several times during the week. But Friday is the only day that birds are on the wire. Strange.
BTW, if you click on the photos a few times, you can see the second, slightly more distant wire. That is our eruv.

My older posts that explain the Jewish idea of eruv:
