Wow…huge thanks to John (lifesnapper) for his shiny User Award on yesterday’s rant. Such a nice surprise
Now then…I was trying to get shots of a tailorbird yesterday when I heard our squirrel emit its throaty *chuk-chuk-chuk* warning cry. As I approached the rambutan tree, I heard the *scree!* of a golden oriole. Ah…so that’s why. The poor squirrel most likely misunderstood and thought the oriole was there to cause trouble. [I think the squirrels have started – or are starting – a family again]
But I’m pretty sure the oriole was there for the rambutans (V3). None of them were ripe, though, so the oriole upped and left. The rambutans are bright red when ripe. Crazy oriole must be colour-blind or short-sighted.
So there you go…three shots from yesterday’s little ‘incident’
