Our garden having colourful foliage plants and flowers does attract many colourful butterflies and birds. The small water pond is always busy with pigeons, mynas, sparrows and crows. Even humming birds, king fishers and other exotic birds are also seen some times.
Though now a days due to construction of tall towers the rare bird species are moving away from our place, guess to a better environment in nature. The king fishers are so colourful and also the love birds. During the rains just before the first rain the blue bird had also visited many years back, but have not seen this bird for long.
Due to lack of natural habitat available birds are becoming extinct and it is our responsibility to preserve them.The Koyal who calls every morning at 4, 5 o'clock also has lost her tree home recently due to chopping of trees in our area. Wonder where the couple will reside , hope they come to me!

Feeding her fresh fruits, vegetables and scramble eggs. Also she enjoys eating fresh leaves and flowers from our garden. Our pea climber had nearly died due to her acrobatics, luckily she had stopped fingering and the climber is showing fresh leaves. Parakeet likes to play on palm tree and enjoys the rains by getting thoroughly wet. I was wondering how to bathe her as she runs away during garden watering.
Also she did not drink much water and we were worried but now she drinks fresh water after eating cereals or other foods.
What a gift from God, love you nature!
