Checking out the wildlife

Lime Butterfly at the Ixora coccinea flowers

 Checking out the wildlife this morning.  The Lime Butterfly was visiting the bright orange Ixora coccinea flowers.  There were many sounds or call of various birds.  Overhead were various calls of swallows. swifts and the bee-eaters.  The pipits, bulbuls, spiderhunters and flowerpeckers were also seen and heard. It was very interesting to observe the Perlings or Asian/Philippines Glossy Starlings and the Blue-throated Bee-eaters giving  knock-out blows to the bees before devouring them.
