In Brussels you can find squirrels, not only in parks, but also in strange places… Here are a few examples:
In a previous post I included a picture of a magnificent swan that can be seen in the façade of “La Maison du Cygne” a renowned Brussels restaurant in the Grand’ Place.
In this post I show a few pictures of swans I discovered in the streets of Brussels.
It was a difficult one to decoy, but I succeded!
I found it here, at the feet of one of the statues in the façade of the Fine Arts Museum in the Rue de la Régence.

Definitely, owls are ubiquitous in Brussels. When walking through the streets of Brussels in one of my hunts for owls (and other creatures) I found this magnificent pair (or couple) of owls perched on the facade of an equally gorgeous art nouveau house in the Avenue Molière, in the section belonging to the commune of Forest/Vorst.
I do not know the name of the architect who designed the house but the house has the looks of those designed by Jena Baptiste Dewin. Perhaps readers could help me in finding the name of the architect and the year the house was built.
As you can see I have not been idle during the past weeks.
Here are a few more prizes of my hunts for owls!

I am back!
Those who thought that I had stopped with my blog: do not worry! I am here in Brussels, alive and kicking!
Proof of this is this new post. On owls, once more!
As I mentioned in my previous post owls are a very special bird, at least here in Brussels, a city marked in history by a strong presence of the free-masonry.
The owl you see “hangs” in balcony of a house located nearby the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, i.e. the Flemish “opposite” of the “Université Libre de Bruxelles”
