Red-keeled Flowerpecker and Nest

By:

This morning we walked to some neighbouring houses along the river to buy a few crabs. We were a bit late however and the crabs were sold out and the villagers were already occupied with making nipa roofing panels.

However right above their heads I spotted the nest of a red-keeled flowerpecker and a a hyper-active parent busy feeding its nestlings.

Unless I’m imagining things you can just make out a nestling in this photo of the nest…

Oh, and walking back home a guy on some scaffolding painting the second floor of our local sari-sari shop called out to have his picture taken and put on this site. Happy to oblige…

And one parting shot of our barangay neighbour the flowerpecker having a very busy morning…
