There is a little bird that has been visiting my studio for a while. She comes with a flock but quickly separates from them and sits by my window, looking inwards to where I work. She gives one loud peck on the window and when we make eye contact, she leaves. This is her way of demanding peanuts, something she loves more than the Bajra and rice I put out for her and her friends! So, I drop whatever I am doing, shell the peanuts and then crush them so that my friend can have her special treat😊! 🐤
Morning walk revealed a bedraggled but beautiful Green Barbet chick trying to find a footing on a small bush. Last nights storm seemed to have propelled it into the low lying greens.
As I wandered around wondering what to do, the chick seemed to take it upon herself to let me know that she was fine. As she fluttered to a higher branch, I was reassured that she could take care of herself.
When I returned from my walk she was nowhere to be seen. Hopefully, branch by branch she was able to climb her way home. 😊
