This is another photo taken in Scotland. It was taken after the whole class walked up the hill (that felt like a mountain and wasn't too far off) behind the hostel we were staying in. At the top were these bids (we think they were meadow pipits) doing what is called parachuting... don't worry i hadn't heard of it either :). Parachuting (in bird terms) is a display of strength, they fly up high then drift down with their wings rigid, calling. This is apparently meant to intimidate their rivals... i just thought it looked comical if anything :).
