I am not sure if this gorgeous Indian Pitta* I spied on ‘my’ mango tree, was just taking a break on his way someplace else, or if he will continue to grace us with his presence through the cooler season.
I hope it will be the latter, and I will soon have a whole brood of these fluffy orange creatures to share with you.
Better them, than the ones below.
Summer’s raucous song belting obviously paid dividends…..and how! I have already spotted at least four young male Koels sitting around – silently for the time being – out front, probably awaiting their spouses.
R & I are seriously considering moving house! 🙂
* What I mistakenly assumed to be the Orange Breasted Nuthatch turned out to be the Indian Pitta. Edited accordingly on 27/05/2014
