A bit of whimsy for Jinksy’s tandem. Birds have colour vision and can also see ultra-violet but use it as a survival skill – finding food, attracting a mate in order to reproduce, for example - and not to appreciate the finer things in life, so far as we know!

When raptors soar do they ever look down
And see the beauty beneath them,
Or are they programmed only to kill,
Instinct for life overwhelming?
Through the swirling clouds to the lands below
Is their scrutiny concentrated,
Seeking the prey their talons will snatch
That will shriek as the flesh is torn?
