Eagles and Ravens

The Bald Eagle dwarfs most other raptors, including the Turkey Vulture and Red-tailed Hawk. It has a heavy body, large head, and long, hooked bill. Eagle is the common name for many large birds of prey of the family Accipitridae. Eagles belong to several groups of genera, some of which are closely related. Most of the 60 species of eagle are from Eurasia and Africa

STOP AIR POLLUTION

While most human beings breathe in polluted air, it is taking away a couple of years from our global collective life expectancy.

Air pollution affects every organ in our body. The contamination of the indoor or outdoor environment by any chemical, physical or biological agent modifies the natural characteristics of the atmosphere. Household combustion devices, motor vehicles, industrial facilities, and forest fires are common sources of air pollution.

World Bee Day

World Bee Day is celebrated every year on May 20 because on this day Anton Janša, the pioneer of beekeeping, was born in 1734.

The purpose of the international day is to acknowledge the role of bees as pollinators for the global ecosystem. Consistently on this day, the public should be focused on the significance of saving honey bees. 

To learn about the importance of World Bee Day I decided to be with my well-behaved neighbors on City Island, New York.

City Images will not celebrate this Earth Day, but we will meditate and reflect on what 🌏  earthlings have done to our planet.

This #EarthDay 🌎 we invite you to read- We think that it is extremely important to get recharged and inspired. Do you agree that the beauty of our planet is truly a unique blessing?

Although it does not officially arrive until Sunday, the birds outside my window may not have received a Mother Nature notification.

HELP - While some global regions keep drying up, other areas worldwide will continue to experience extreme flooding dangers.

The United Nations climate report predicts most of the sea ice in the Arctic Ocean will melt by 2035 leading to a complete lack of ice in the Summer season. Since polar bears, penguins, and other animals won't have places to hunt, they'll move inland into parts of Alaska and Canada.
