A Dash of White in a Concrete City

A Happy Wild Family



While poacher  sell them along the city’s high streets to be served on dinner tables, this small bunch of the cattle egrets, a common resident bird in Bangladesh, are found freely feeding in the wetland in Banani, the heart of the posh city. It only proves that it does not need any caring but just a little bit of safe habitat for wildlife to flourish in Bangladesh. But we hardly care to share a world with all the species that have a similar right to live.
