Some of the birds we saw (AND photographed, which wasn't always possible!), in no particular order....
We regularly seem to see this ORIENTAL HONEY BUZZARD in the area:
Just see that fierce "raptor" look!
This male INDIAN ROBIN was strutting around, showing his red vent (you can just see it under his tail):
Thankfully, he didn't moon me, as this disrespectful little PURPLE-RUMPED SUNBIRD did:
At the second gate of Valley School, we spotted this HOOPOE:
Our tiny friends the PALE-BILLED FLOWERPECKERs were there in force in the ornamental Cherry trees:
The sight of the WHITE-BROWED BULBUL was a welcome one:
We saw many more of their common RED-VENTED or RED-WHISKERED cousins:
We enjoyed watching several SCALY-BELLIED MUNIAS; at two locations, they were busy building nests. Here's one, probably asking the spouse if the soft furnishings are OK. You can see the long leaf that it's brought in; the munia made repeated trips and the first time, we didn't understand what that long-tailed bird was!
Another one is eating the grain from the grasses on the road:
Which is what several SILVERBILLS were also doing!
Several LAUGHING DOVES were around:
Of course, the WHITE-CHEEKED BARBETS were all around, too, making their typical calls:
I photographed these flowers, I wonder if it is the LAVENDER?
Some of these ornamental flowers have spread all over the slopes:
Two lovely mornings, spent with friends....!
