Few years ago, after shopping, I went to the bus stop and I couldn’t believe in what I saw. I thought there were young hawks or something like that (I’m not a bird expert). There were about six of them. Young, curious, stupid. They couldn’t even fly. I spend with them quite a lot of time, happy to have my camera with me. Those photos were taken with Canon Powershot 520, without any good zoom, so you can imagine how close I could be.
Youngsters weren’t scared and looked at me with curiosity. I didn’t see a mother, they might felt down from a huge billboard under which I found them. I called Zoo, but they said that they can’t come and I should call municipal police to take them to Zoo. Municipal Police told them that they cannot take birds with them. And I didn’t have any carton, box or even a car. As I learn Kestrels live in the city and there is quite a lot of them there (but I have never again seen any).
I hope they survived. They were young, I observed them passing the road and I knew one second and the car can be there…
Anyway, it was an amazing moment. Right in the city.
