The one thing that has always fascinated me while at the institute was a flock of large birds roosting on the roof of a school across the river. Once in a while, they could be spotted at the river hunting for food. On many evenings, just after dusk, I could make out their dark forms flying overhead. I had always wondered what those eerie things were until I saw them perching on the roof from afar during daytime.
