Re: THURSDAY QUIZ 23 May 2019

Q1 = Harris Hawks (the pigeon population in Trafalgar Square was out of control so Mayor of London decided to get rid of them. They brought in Harris Hawks as birds of prey. The Hawks dont kill them they just frighten them away. Pigeons know they are predators.

 

Q2 Germany

 

Q3. We actually see Sea, Sky and Clouds. (the sun has already set (as light bends) so the sun is actually an optical illusion )

If anyone posts before me and gives the same answers, I agree with them....... Smiley Wink
Q1 - Pigeons, but not if the Hawks succeed in chasing them off.
Q2 - Bavaria, Germany and I've been to a town called Augsburg where it is claimed that the first one was found.
Q3 - A sunset, red sky (from refracted light) and sea.

Q1. Pigeons, I didn't know about Harris Hawks being brought in, though I do know pigeons were becoming a problem 

 

Q2. Germany

 

Q3. The sky, clouds and water. The sun is, as @Cleoriff says an optical illusion for the exact reason she has given.
