The hoarse cry of an eagle stops me halfway down the road to work, and I curiously peer into the grove of trees where the bird is hidden. As I walk further an unnamed, long-tailed songbird alights from its perch on the telephone wires. Right outside my workplace two ibises stride calmly across the green, sliding their curved beaks elegantly into the sheath of the red earth.
