These photos of Pale Mele, Lola and company over a number of years in downtown New York City are really impressive -- they are beautiful and it is interesting to see urban wildlife where many people just do not notice it.

WOW, there are a thousand stories behind every picture and they are very beautiful pictures indeed. I have just chosen a few at random and each seem to tell a long story. (the ones I have seen are sad stories :cry: )
Thank you Alice for another link..this time to Urban Wildlife. They sure seem to have a hard time protecting them.even in Central Park ?

I wish there were some words so we would know, but... maybe not.
I noticed one from 2002 -- "dying chick." Such a terrible title ... I guess I have been pretty lucky with the babies I have watched this year. But many of the photos are amazing.

Here are some very good pictures posted on an American forum about Bald Eagles, at Norfolk Botanical Gardens.
Adult bald eagle is attempting to pass a fish to juvenile named Azalea. Fantastic shots!

It's a 2007 documentary. Sorry if somebody has already given a link to this film somewhere here in the past. If not, there are about 50 minutes to enjoy. Caution - nature as it is.

Brit sent me this link to
http://www.iberia-natur.com/en/index-en.html
It's really good. So far I have looked at the section on Raptors and also "frog episodes" That is great fun and fantastic close-up photography.
There are English, Spanish and German versions.
I haven't looked all round it yet, but the frog photography captivated me!

If the images Jo posted weren't enough for you here are some more lovely ones.
http://www.microscopy-uk.org.uk/mag/ind ... owers.html

(Although as they are flower pictures they are stretching the definition of Birds and Animals. But they are beautiful and those at the cell level are interesting as well as lovely.)

I had not heard of this before I read this post -- but apparently people are getting owls for pets after reading/watching Harry Potter stories and then not taking care of their pets.

:slap: I was idling around some bird picture pages today. The chick is is told to be a Charadrius alexandrinus, Kentish Plover (Mustajalkatylli in Finnish and Meritüll in Estonian:

The story behind the photograph I found by occasion on the BirdForum:

"I thought I'd post this for the girls. We have so many young chicks running around that we have to be very careful where we step and drive. Howard had to remove this young guy as he had got a bit too close to my car and I was ready to move off. It provided a nice photo opportunity before he was returned to his parents, none the worse for wear."

Thank you, Jo, amazing pictures! :loveshower:

I always feel a bit guilty when watching lovely photos of lovely frogs... they are the food for my most beloved storks... I wonder, does anyone else feel the same? :puzzled:

That is always a difficult thing to consider, given our human perspective. I just remind myself that "everything eats everything else" and try to accept it. It's not easy

As a child, there was one year when we had a duck called Daisy. In December Mother told me that Daisy was going to be Christmas dinner! I was horrified and very upset (age eight) I can never forget that!

Oh, I know what you mean, Jo! I remember we had two lovely bunnies one year in our summerhouse (??? "suvila" ???) when I was a kid...
