Drexel Birds

There is an open courtyard in the middle of the engineering buildings at Drexel just off Market Street with a few trees and bushes. I walk though a few times a week, usually when I’m late or feeling too lazy to walk around. Every time I’m amazed at the huge numbers of birds hanging out in there at all hours. They sing birdly choruses and all congregate in one tree, but not always the same tree.

This perplexed me quite a bit until this morning. The birds were gathered in a shorter tree closer to the walkway and I got a good look at some of them. They are quite pleasingly plump. Then it occurred to me that there are also about half a dozen food trucks lining the south end of the courtyard. These must be some of the happiest, best fed birds in Philadelphia.
