Birding at home, 250320

It is the first day of the total 21-day lockdown announced by our Prime Minister. I decided to move to my daughter's home as that makes more logistical sense.

I have watered all the plants in the pots on the terrace, not knowing that my son in law has already done so. This results in a pool of water in some of the pots (though the Coleus plants still look droopy and deprived).

I come inside and sit, typing random stuff on my laptop; the terrace is visible through the grille of the window, which also has an anti-mosquito mesh.

To my delight, one of the pair of Red-whiskered Bulbuls that are resident in the building, decides on a long, luxurious bath in one of the pots! After a few delighted moments, I quickly get my camera, and the following video.




I wasn't able to get the lady sunbird that was feeding off the Hibiscus earlier; I am glad I've had more success this time, though it was through the grille and the net...I can call it the Internet Bulbul!

The bird flies off, and I return to my work, smiling happily to myself.
