    I agree with Bene... All we ever see are the crows, mynahs, sparrows, egrets, pigeons and occassionally robins, kingfishers and parrots! Oh, and a yellow bird you took some time before...

    Nice pics! Nice birds!

    I haven't see the 'drongo' for at least 10 years already, used to have 1 or 2 flying around the old bedok area.
    Something about the water & the fishes that calms me down.

    why you show us a bunch of leaves again huh?
    why I don't do garden hybrids and aquarium strains: natural species is a history of Nature, while hybrids are just the whims of Man.

    Wow! Of all of them, I have only seen the Greater Racket-tailed Drongo Dicrurus paradiseus. Guess I have to be more alert next time.
