Birds land…

…or come close to the ground, hovering.  The seem about to land, and you anticipate the finality of their little feet touching the ground, talons clacking or whispering; you tense up for it.

The birds have seen something off, something twitchy, and they fly away again, perhaps to a tree, but they never touch the ground.  Tension diffuses through your muscles without satisfaction of release.
