#MothersDay   #Whiteeye  #Birding

Happy Mothers Day!!.....Er....Parents Day!!!!says IndianWildlifeClub

Outside our home, near the main gate, we spot a nest.   On the Ashoka tree.   The Indian White Eye (Zosterops palpebrosus) is sitting with its wings spread on the nest.  Surely there are chicks inside.   Birding ethics prevents me from going near the nest.  Temperature outside is 42 degrees centigrade.   

The bird is sitting with its wings spread to protect the chicks from heat.  Parents share duties of cleaning the nest, feeding the chicks and protecting the chicks from heat. 

The Indian White Eye is a tiny bird, 8cm in size.  Sexes look similar.  

Happy Mothers Day!! er   Parents Day!!!!!

Birds of Sikkim

Sikkim birds

Sikkim is a haven for bird watchers.  Trekking the hills and valleys is certainly the best way to observe and photograph them.  However, if you are a bird lover you can spot birds wherever you are visiting-near a monastery, at waterfalls, on the roadsides, near the place you are staying.  Absence of chemicals and fertilizers make the entire state bird friendly.

As Northern part of Sikkim was mostly inaccessible in February, our recordings of bird sightings are linmited to the South and West part mostly. 

 

The video is a visual account of the common birds we could capture.

Why the Bulbul built a nest at our doorstep

Posted by Susan Sharma on October 06, 2018

 
Forum Post

Why did the bulbul choose a tree at the entrance to our house to build a nest?  Well, here is the story.

 

Our garden has feral cats, shikras and tree pies visiting regularly.  Needless to say all three are predators of birds.  The bulbul perceived less threat from the occupants of the house.

I Watched the parent birds and chick through the camera sitting in my house comfortably. Visitors to our house never noticed the nest, so the chick hatched successfully and grew into a handsome bulbul.  

 

 

An organic garden which is not manicured, but left to grow naturally.  That is the secret of attracting birds and butterflies into your garden. For me the pleasure of gardening is complete when I see it come alive with bird chirpings.

 

Please share the video if you like it.  Please also tell  what you think about the video.  Here is the link to the video.
