Feathered Friends at Mom's Table

Mom's most recent trip and Big World Assignment took her first to Holland. She goes there a lot to visit family, plus she just loves the country.

Mom decided to go visit the town of Volendam, since it has been a while since she had been there, and it was such a peaceful town last time she visited.  Mom walked around a bit, but eventually she got hungry.

Mom decided to eat Pannekoeken (Dutch pancake), so she stopped at a waterfront cafe.  Immediately she thought, what interesting patrons at this cafe!  There were no people but instead there were many European Starlings hanging around, and they were very pushy with mom.

They took turns hopping onto mom's table and demanded:
"Feed me!  Feed me!"

They were not only on the table, but also at mom's feet demanding:
"Feed me!  Feed me!"
Mom thought, this sounded ever so familiar, just as if she was eating a meal at home.

Finally mom gave in, and surrendered her plate to the Starlings.

And the moral of the story?   
Persistence pays off!  
Trust me, I know, when it comes to food!

Before you go, please stop by JB's SMALL WORLD too, thanks!
