In Slovenia it’s St. Gregory’s today, the day when birds get married.
More on this pagan holiday which we call “Gregorjevo” here. It’s St. Valentine’s Day, Slovenian-style.
I had planned to post other bird photos, but today as I went to buy groceries by the lagoon, as one does, certain aviators demanded attention. They can be found in the second half of the photos below, mostly married off yet, but first some doves from around here still looking for company.
Only now that I’m ready to post this I realise that here, in the south of Tuscany, the climate is completely different from that in Slovenia, which means that while over there birds are getting married today, here they must already be thinking of divorce.
Click on the first photo and follow the story in the captions.
Here is a dove.
Here is another, on a different day.
Maybe they should meet.
This one seems interested.
When exactly do doves cry?
This is a third dove.
Alas, more luck next time. This is just a leaf. But we have reached the lagoon next to our supermarket.
One day I’ll remember to approach quietly.
I didn’t and everybody is running away.
This is how far away they usually are, our pinkish flamingos on winter holiday.
Today they were spread out a bit more.
I had to wait to catch it with its head out of the water.
They seem happy.
He is giggling at the sign.
They are plotting to break down current legislation.
Bye bye, happy ducks.
And these two? It’s not clear if they need a wedding planner or a lawyer.

And here is another bird-filled post from this day on my first blog.
