Bird and nest making

In the morning of 24 June 2008, I woke up and listen to the birds singing loudly and continously at the rear side of my house.  I peep through the window and I saw many birds flying and singing happily as today in the early morning at 3.00am it rain was so heavy.  This morning the weather so fine and cooler than usual.  Then I notice a bird making its nest.  A new nest.  Probably last night her nest was damaged blown by the strong wind.  First in my life, today is my lucky day as I witnessed the bird making its nest at the closed distance barely 5 metres away on the palm tree from my window.  On the next 6 days, every morning, the first thing is to look at the bird’s nest making progress.  What a wonderful world!

On day 1, the bird makes the round shape cage hanging from one of the leave.  The ring is strong enough to take bird’s body weight.

    I was lucky given the opportunities to witness such event and able to captured all the important moments with my compact camera from only one suitable place, my house’s rear window.

    Such a little bird very concern about their nest as their home then its much more to us as a human being. Everyone deserves a such place called home.

    Thanks
