Well, just birds

Oriental Magpie-robin (Lopsychus saularis)

Pink-necked Green Pigeon
 It has been raining since dawn this morning till past noon time. There is not much outside activity that could be done except walking around the park looking for some active wildlife especially those of the feathered species.  The big birds were hardly seen but their smaller relatives were everywhere merrily making music.  The Oriental Magpie-robin, Pink-necked Pigeon. Chestnut Munia and the Spotted-necked Dove made up the day's list.
At close to ground level (near Zone F)  I saw one juvenile Chestnut Munia without the characteristic black hood.  It was busy plucking the grass seeds from a long branch that bent on its weight.  A pair of Spotted-necked Dove seemed to enjoy moments together, while up on the Cempedak Hill the colourful Pink-necked Pigeon surveyed the neighbourhood from the tallest perch of the Cempedak tree. Well, today was just birds!.
