A piece about owls in the Guardian mentions Kikinda in northern Serbia:
“.. up to 750 long-eared owls – part of this species’ largest concentration on the planet – roost every night in the town’s main streets …
“At dawn the entire town is caught in sunlit hoar frost, and as the residents stroll to work or their lessons, they thread through the parallel world of these night birds. The owls are utterly indifferent, their eyelids squeezed tight like closed shutters, holding aloof from the human community and stopping up in the darkness of their dreams all that gloriously unknowable magic of their lives.”
