across the river? did you try calling them?

Tabib said...

Yes, I was resting at the river bank when I notice some birds movement on the opposite site. I didn't have a speaker loud enough to call them.

Last Sunday must have been a day for B&R Broadbills. Never seen a B&R actually building a nest.The one i took in Kemensah was an already completed nest.Funny how they always build their nest dangling over water. A good angle shot Doc, exposing the full colours of the birds. Nice one!

"Do they not see the birds above them, spreading out their wings and folding them in? None upholds them except the Most Beneficent (Allah). Verily, He is the All-Seer of everything".
Surah Al-Mulk (67:19)
