In with the new, two juvenile Common Myna (Sturnus tristis) both prematurely out of nest and picked up from driveway outside my caravan this week.
Yes, I know, the birds top many hate lists. But a bird's a bird.
And which species has brought about the rise of Mynas and other unloved creatures? Anyway, here's to getting a few things right for 2015, starting with .............? Your choice!
No New Year resolution from me, merely a reflection that sometimes beauty's in the bigger picture. Though it's a pity the Greenshanks didn't stay in pool above.
But every now and then a bird pops out of nowhere and completes the picture.
Thus, Striated Heron (Butorides striata) at first unnoticed along a mangrove creek, later caught closer as it stalked beside the water. Happy New Year!
