Once upon a time


 There was a cycle lane in BKC about a decade back but in the rush for commercial development, it was neglected and now only the boards are left. There is a move to get it working again, hope cyclists get the lane they deserve.

Moved in


 After a week of intense activity, the purple rumped sunbird finished building its nest and moved in. I had a ringside view of the proceedings as it is in our balcony.

The nest is made up of fine plant fibres, cobwebs and is studded on the exterior with lichens, bark pieces, flying seeds and other materials. The nest is constructed by the female alone although the male may fly alongside her. The female stays in the nest at night a couple of day before laying the eggs. The eggs are incubated by both the male and female.
