The cold birds of Paris

Here is Ben feeding some sparrows in the park next to the Eiffel tower. It is about 2:30 pm and about zero degrees, very cold, but a beautiful sunny day. We had just finished having a lunch of washed rind cheese, fresh baguette, lettuce. tomato and olives. The pigeons and sparrows were virtually prostrating themselves before us for some scraps so we gave them some older bread. Boy did they get excited. The poor pigeons were so cold they reacted a good few seconds after the sparrows and got none, until they decided to sit on my hand.
