Friday Night Flicks: Le Merle

The weather has been cold (about 10 degrees below normal with a low of -3C predicted for tonight) and wet and extremely windy this week so we haven’t been out riding around on our tandem bicycle. Last week, however, when it was sunny and 10 degrees above normal, we did several rides around the neighbourhood. One of the places we rode past  is owned by a man who feeds birds on a grand scale. I am not sure how he attracts them, but the spruce trees along the road frontage of his property were filled with singing blackbirds every time we went by.

They reminded me of this 1958 film by Canadian pioneer animator Norman McLaren.



Perhaps there will be more birdwatching this weekend, when the weather is supposed to be warmer again.

    I love this little film. I first encountered links to it among the asemic writing and visual poetry communities.
