Birds - an essential component

 The annual fruit season is almost over and the drought season has been over too with at least two occasions of heavy rain since the last ten days to usher in the end of year rainy season.  Birding today was interesting for three captures.  Firstly, a pair of Pied Fantail was happily moving about the trees and branches in their typical suicidal flights and noisy twitters.  Secondly, a pair of Pink-necked Pigeon was seen perching quietly on the Cempedak tree at Zone G.  Finally, a lone Oriental- Magpie-robin was seen resting on the very tip of a branch at Zone G, broadcasting the best music for the morning.  The birds and their music are an essential component of the park.
