Birds and the city



Sometimes interested in something on the pavement, sometimes concerned on their involving tasks, and sometimes pretending they act in Hitchcock's film, but always great to watch.

Urban wildlife is always wonderful to see... too many people walk arong with their eyes closed...

Where would be if our cities were birdless? Always good to see them.

Isn't it great that birds can fly and be in the city as well as the countryside? Nice shots of your city birds.

the movie was scary. I´m glad they don´t behave like that. :) Nice shots.

Birds in the city can be awfully pesky and messy (i.e. the 3rd shot), but I don't know what we'd do without them.

It is amazing how some species adapt and even thrive where humans are..of course some other species are having a tough time thanks to us...

A ja mam zawsze w kieszeni ziarna slonecznika i rzucam im pod nogi i ciesze sie, ze tak wcinaja, te miejskie bidaki.
Tak, te koniki islandskie, zyjace caly rok na lesnych pastwiskach wzruszaja mnie tez. Maluszka jest cudna. Jednak ich wlasciciel postaral sie o zabudowanie o 3 scianach, gdzie moge sie schowac przed najgorszym wiatrem, sniegiem i deszczem. Wczoraj mialy jednak calkiem mokra siersc, sierotki. Niedzielne pozdrowienia!

❤ Olá!
Passei para uma visitinha.
º° ♥ Na minha cidade só se vê pombas rolinhas e pardais.
Na sua cidade a variedade de aves é maior.
Gostei das suas fotografias.
Beijinhos.
