Look Who Strayed Into My Mango Tree!

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! 🙂
