Concrete nests

With high raises on the increase in a city like Chennai, the natural habitats of various birds & animals seems to be vanishing very quickly.

This leads to having concrete nests for these pigeons in the window sills of various tall buildings. I have always thought / seen these earlier only in Mumbai till a couple of years back, but nowadays chennai also is moving in the same direction.

P.s. : hope you could see the pigeon in the picture on the other side of the window glass !

  1. Have you noticed that we rarely get to see sparrows any more? I don’t remember seeing one for the last 6 years or so.

    One reason contributing to the sparrows’ decline is the rise of pigeons – being larger, they win the food fights, apparently.

    Nice to have them around, still.
