There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Crows harass a black kite on sun-shed of the building next to mine. Because of them kites perch on high structures & don't come so low (2nd floor).

A barn-owl resting in the morning right below my window, less than 2 metres away from the camera lense. Crows got bored by its nonchalance & left.

@Rishi :

About the last photo of #2: aren't the owls nocturnal birds ? If yes, perhaps this one isn't in good shape... Perhaps too the night was falling when you took this photo.

Early morning... 
Once the night is over they take shelter in places like this. It's not that that can't see in sunlight, but the glare dazzles their eyes in daytime. So they avoid opening the  on one leg.

Shadow of a tall building on the opposite side falls on this window all day during winter. It spent the day there & flew away in the evening.

There are many urban foxes who quarrel with each other and the local cats every night on my road, its fascinating to watch the interaction, just how active they are throughout the early hours of the morning and what they get up to. I've tried to get images before but unfortunately I dont have a great camera, I will try tonight to get a good one if the stars align. One thing I've noticed is they've never been seen by a pedestrian walking along the street seconds after they are there. They take so much care in not being seen (less so heard since they scream and freak me out in the middle of the night sometimes lol). I need not imagine since I know almost for certain the population is thriving. It's great to see in an area where compelling wildlife can only be found in zoo's.
