June has been a month of building new nests, breeding, and feeding the young. I have spotted around 15 nests in and around in the last one week.
From a Barbet finding a well-placed hole in a tree right in front of my place to the Prinias with their careful stitching to the Baya weavers with their uncanny craft, we are blessed to be living in a community such as this.
