This big one is no city dweller. So I was surprised to spot them at the center of the city, living on some big old trees. It is incredible!

  1. Adaptation…survival of the fittest.

  2. Once we had a big Eucalyptus tree in our flats and there was a huge nest – In it there was a kite living. The bird was huge!! But now neither the tree is there nor the kite!

  3. I am coming to a rather militant belief that we must preserve every creation…even so-called pests, for eco balance is something man cannot grasp in its entirety.

  4. what bird is it? i agree with ur comment, eco balance is something we cannot grasp in its entirety!

  5. It’s definitely an Ibis. Might just be a glossy Ibis, but it’s hard to tell.
