All around us, in the face of “development”, I see so many birds which manage to adapt to urban life, and live amongst us. The crow, the kite, the myna, the pigeon… these are the common examples, as are cattle egrets and pond herons. But yesterday, at the busiest of places… the Silk Board junction, I saw these beautiful Red-rumped Swallows flying and perching on the wires!
Long may our urban birds last!
