Birds in Geneva

One of the cool things of being in Geneva, is that there are excellent bird watching spots inside the city. Not only because 1/4 of the city is made of public parks, but because there is a lake and two rivers inside the city. I have seen already about 50 different species around Geneva, and there are still a lot more to be seen.

My favourite 3 spots until now, are La Perl du Lac, Parc La Grange, and the spot where the two rivers meet. But I still have a lot to explore, so I bet I'll some other nice surprises.

Here are some photos, but since I left my big gun in Portugal (the 300mm), all the photos are taken with the 50mm lens. I really miss my big lens :(

Shema Community

Recently I noticed Shema Community, based in Geneva, Switzerland. Looks really interesting, worth a look if you are interested in the Emerging Church. A little about them:

"Shema Community Movement is not another ‘church’ or ’denomination’ within the Christian faith or religion but a ‘grass-roots’ missional movement (missional means leading a ‘go to them’ life, instead of a ‘come to us and become like us’ life), sharing the belief that ‘good news must be good news for everybody or it is not good news at all.’ At our core, we embrace Judeo-Christian essentials measuring ‘goodness’ by what we practice, who we’re becoming, what we embrace, what we create, and whom we include."
