"Feeding Falafel to Wild Bird"
Masada, Israel, 2016
***

At the top of Masada, a tourist was snacking on a falafel ball.  There were a few small birds perched above us, watching.  She decided to see if a bird would take any food from her.  So she placed a small bit of falafel in her hand, and held it outstretched and still.  After a few moments, one of the birds flew down, stood briefly on her wrist, snatched the falafel in his beak, and flew back to enjoy it.
