Another week almost ends, and it's getting unbearably hot and humid. Some heavy rain is soon due, it seems. As I told you on my last post, I did have a little walk through the birding patch last Saturday morning, and saw an unbelievable variety of birds, though photographing them proved to be real tough.
There was a nest of a White-bellied Drongo on a Tamarind (Tamarindus indica) tree by the rock pool. I took snaps of a parent and one juvenile. Do play the video, you can listen to mama(or papa) bird's lovely call. These Drongos are interesting birds, they can mimic other birds' calls and even other animals' sounds. I have heard them mewing like cats, no kidding!

I made all below photos walking home after work.
Common Kingfisher, Alcedo atthis
Rock Pigeon, Columba livia
Spotted Dove ,Spilopelia chinensis
One of the Barbet couple who have nesting on the Bread-fruit tree was having a high-protein diet on a small tree in the garden today. Only if they are kind enough to do that with my vegetable plants!
That's it for the time being, folks, hope you would enjoy! Stay tuned for the nest post nest Friday!
