I would like to think that I’m a naturalist. But mostly an urban naturalist.
I love observing Nature reclaiming urban areas.
I love watching wildlife taking over abandoned buildings, dandelions pushing their way through cracks in the pavements. This quiet rebellion fills me up with joy and hope.
Above is a portrait of a jackdaw I took earlier on today in my backyard.
And here is another one, of one of the local house-sparrows…
Today’s bird watching report wouldn’t be complete without the mention of one of my beloved neighbours: a pigeon. Pigeons have taken over an abandoned house located a few doors down. If you peek through the letter box you will see that this is their very fancy bird house… and this fella is perched on top…
I hope you get a chance to spend some time watching the local wildlife in your area, wether you live in an urban area or in the country side.
A park, a disused building, a small backyard or a balcony are all very good spots for bird watching…
Have a good night,
