The bird witch

By pure chance I seemed to have run into a witch. A bird witch. We were simply walking up these stairs in Lisbon, when some pigeons came flying over our heads, scaring the kids. A woman appeared at the top of the stairs, accompanied by a black cat. The pigeons started to gather around her. The birds were not afraid of the cat, nor was the cat interested in the birds. The woman looked from afar and probably spotted me taking pictures. She covered her face with her coat and made it to her door, as did her cat. She went inside with dozens of birds gathering in front of her doorstep. Not a Hitchcock movie but a real bird witch? I have to ask the kids again, as I remember them saying the birds had strange colored eyes. Hmmmm … interesting:)
