Wildlife in the garden

It has been about a week since we arrived Kuching.  The garden looked pretty tidy and little urgent works seemed necessary.  My focus  thus changed to detecting the various wildlife that make their way to the garden.  Two species of dragonflies were seen, bulbuls as usual, a grasshopper and the multi-coloured Brown-throated Sunbird dropped by at the flowering coconut tree.  

Lively is the garden

As if by appointment the common garden birds of Kuching were there to greet me early this morning.  The brightly coloured  orange breast of the Pink-necked Green Pigeon roped in my attention to its natural beauty.  Not to miss the show two other birds that are part of the Kuching garden showed their presence too.  The Long-tailed Shrike and the Pied Triller make the garden busy with their unique calls making the garden lively.  I hope our stay in Kuching this May will see more of them closing in to the garden.
