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
For more pictures of these fluffy birds, take a look at https://birdencountersofabalconykind.wordpress.com/2014/11/29/showering-in-the-rain/
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 🙂 ) 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 😦
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 go 😛
Life still goes on outside our balcony, though, and over the past 2 months we’ve managed to spot many exciting birds, both new…
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 😛
