    Suraj,

    Good attempt. Compositionally, this is fine, except that I may have liked just a little more space to the left (I think there is a li'l too much space on the right). Good eye contact. I may be sounding radical, but I believe it is better that the birds got killed by a being higher up in the food chain than being alive for a lifetime in a jail (the cage in this case)!

    thanks for sharing.

    Good you could observe this behavior. Slight more space at the bottom and on the left would be good. How did it manage to kill the birds inside the cage? Thanks for sharing.

    Even i was not luckey enough to witness this sean as i had gone to tution.My mother told me about this after i returned home.Even i raised the same question to my mom.She said that it used its legs and cought the bird.After which the owner chased away this bird.When i came i went out still the bird was waiting perched on a coconut tree for the owner to go in,this gave me few chances to click few images before it flew away.

    Why not a wider composition?

    We don't have any laws for exotic pets. Else, our demand for these birds will ensure someone keeps on catching them in their native places. Same happens to birds from India as thousands of birds are caught and sold - some for food, pet trade, and for rituals.
