The friends with whom I'm currently residing are in a 7th floor apartment that looks
out on the Arabian Sea. Birds soar about, dive bombing, and squawking,
especially during daytime hours. They are, primarily, crows and black kites
( Milvus vigrans govinda or common pariah kite ). These birds prefer to be near
human habitation and are a little smaller than vultures. They normally eat small
birds, mice, lizards, termites.
Rosy helps them out a bit by throwing out small pieces of raw chicken which they
swoop by and grab. It is amazing to see. The crows get pieces of bread and
actually approach the window to take it from her hand.
