95 Seconds in the Bird Department at Doha’s Souq Waqif
If exotic chirping is your thing, then today’s 95-second mental health break is for you — like a special present written in glitter and glue.
I’m in Doha at the moment, the perfect time to finally post this bit of video shot during my last visit in February.
This was taken at the bird department of Doha’s Souq Waqif, the Qatari capital’s largest old style market. Birds are popular pets throughout Qatar and the rest of the Middle East. They’re also colorful and loud.
And for the record: the lead photo serves as today’s Pic du Jour, the site’s 852nd straight.
