While you don't need to go to the lengths of bouncing around town in a 4x4 (tho' many on a school run or shopping trip still do!) with just a little imagination you can pretend you are on safari within any urban wonderland.

If you have been on Urban Safari let's see the results :D

I think Condyk's fine with pigeon shots, as long as we don't post any ducks! ;)

Okiewan, that is a fat Pigeon :lol: :lol: and one legged too. Credit to that guy!

Kev ... you shot a very nice Wood Pigeon there, so we got some variety. Mine looks like a Racing Pigeon who lost his way. Okiewan's looks like a Racing Pigeon who lost his leg ;)

Claire, a good Duck shot is welcome. A crummy 'look at how cra**y my L is' shot is probably better posted in the gear forum.

Man ... that is a fat pigeon :lol: :lol:

So, I am also wondering what Urban wildlife there could be here: Fox, Rat, Mouse, Fly, Sparrow, Starling, Ferral Cat ... erm ...

As I recall from the sign at the exhibit, the Bald Eagle was rescued and is no longer able to fly, she now lives unrestricted on a small island.

This pic is a bit more urban, California Highway Patrol Horse at the State Capital.

Man, seems taking an urban safari can be a bit ... erm ... boring. Basically we have variations on Pigeon, whether goose-stepping or not, a Horse and a big bald Budgie :confused: More variety needed people ;) tho' a good Pigeon will continue to be welcome.
