Seagulls that is. With weather like we’ve been having, I don’t blame them for escaping the cold Siberian winter and vacationing in Kunming for a while. Apparently they started coming around 1985, and have returned in mid/late November every year since. They’re quite a tourist attraction, drawing city dwellers, young and old, to the Green Lake park about one block from my house. Today I went to the lake to see the birds and it was a pretty amazing sight. Of course, some thrifty folks have set up stands selling bird feed and bread that you can toss to the birds as they fly by.
