Crows Nest: The crows that live in Tokyo use clothes hangers to make nests. In such a large city, there are few trees, so the natural materials that crows need to make their nests are scarce. As a result, the crows occasionally take hangers from the people who live in apartments nearby, and carefully assemble them into nests. The completed nests almost look like works of art based on the theme of recycling. (© Yosuke Kashiwakura/National Geographic Photo Contest
HH: The adaptability of urban wildlife is amazing!
Watching the birds in the sky - it’s been raining for three days in the desert, so I had to trudge through some mud in the fields today, but I was watching the skies and the birds seemed happy to be flying free now that the rain stopped.
Carmine Colony - Photo and comment by Brendon Cremer
"We had a fantastic time this year on the backs of the Zambezi River with the breeding colonies of Carmine and White Fronted bee eaters. The birds were there in the largest numbers I have seen them, the main colony has grown to about 3 times the size it was last year, which make for some very interesting photography. This image was shot from a remote camera set up in a pile of grass to conceal it. The camera was triggered from my Iphone using a cam ranger. Kalizo, Zambezi River, Namibia.”
