We Haven’t Forgotten You!

Last June, we were visited by the adorable blue-throated bee-eaters, the first migratory birds we spotted when we started birdwatching! They left us sometime in October so we were delighted and surprised to spot them twice recently! Not only did they visit, but they appeared while it was raining so we got to see their famous showering antics :3

With the arrival of these birds, we realized that it’s almost been 1 entire year since we started birdwatching! (on the anniversary itself we’ll post something special ๐Ÿ™‚ ) It was almost as if they remembered us.

Like the bee-eaters, we haven’t forgotten you, our blogging friends! Unfortunately, we have been bogged down with school. Our 1-week March holidays, which just ended, consisted mostly of us returning to school almost everyday to work ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

This picture of a female brown-throated sunbird perfectly represents how we feel… working very hard, like the sunbird trying to yank wood flakes off the branch, with still so much to goย ๐Ÿ˜›

Life still goes on outside our balcony, though, and over the past 2 months we’ve managed to spot many exciting birds, both new…

Our elusive crimson sunbird – we finally managed to take better pictures! Yay! ๐Ÿ˜€

And so we’ll end off with on a hopeful note (new picture) of some blue-tailed bee-eaters! Look out for our posts when we can hit the camera shutter button instead of hitting our schoolbooks ๐Ÿ˜›

  1. All of our Bee-eaters are on their way up to your area to get away from our winter. They were such a delight when I see them, though I usually hear their classic buzzing sound before I see them. Justine, your Blue-tailed variety appears very similar to our Rainbow Bee-eater..

    1. I wonder where your bee-eaters go to! We only have blue-tailed and blue-throated ones here in Singapore. The blue-tailed ones really do look similar to your rainbow ones! Hope to see some one day ๐Ÿ™‚
