The weather was rather hot on Saturday, and I decided to take a break from gardening and armed myself with the camera instead. It’s been a while since I’ve documented the feathered visitors that visit, and these were the ones that stopped by in the early afternoon…
A pair of lovey-dovey speckled doves enjoying the shade – they’re always in pairs! – this was the first time I’ve seen them being affectionate.
A suspicious black-naped oriole up in the palm tree. They’re difficult to photograph because they’re so alert and fly off fast.
A nice, fat sparrow looking for a patch of sand to have a sand-bath in.
Not to be confused with the sparrow, but easily so, is this scaly-breasted munia. It was one of a pair that were happily browsing the uncut lawn for food.
And, last in this series, a mynah feeling the heat after busily looking for food in the grass. It looks like it’s gasping from the heat, doesn’t it?
