Jangka Hayat Burung - Life Expectancy of Birds

Dead Myna
Yellow-vented Bulbul die bitten by car
Kenapa burung Tiong ini dan Merbah Kapur ini meninggal  dunia  mati?.
Why birds die?
1.Disease (selsema burung). Avian Influenza atau Bird Flu selalu berlaku pada burung peliharaan seperti ayam dan itik. Burung hijrah mungkin membawa virus ini. Tiong tidak pernah dikesan membawa kuman ini.
2.Kill by neighbor's cat, here information cat killing kingfisher from Singapore's Bird Ecology Study Group
3.Fighting for mate or whatever reason. Gambar  saya  rakam pada tahun 2008
4.Hunger - Kelaparan kerana musnahnya alam sekitar punca makanan
5.Poacher - Diburu untuk peliharaan
6.Catapult slingshot  by boys - Dilastik budak-budah (zaman saya kecik2 dulu)
Berapa lama jangka hayat burung?
Data saintifik adalah berdasarkan kajian "ringing". Burung ditangkap mengunakan jaring, cincin dengan kod tertentu dipasang pada kaki burung, kemudian dilepaskan. Tangkapan berikut mengikut sela masa dapat menentukan jangka hayat. Universiti Malaya "Bird Ringing Project" - sekurang-kurangnya ada burung Grey-check bulbul dan Cimanon Rump Trogon ditangkap semula selepas 5 tahun.
Secara amnya, burung yang di atas rangkaiyan piramid makan hidup lebih lama, contohnya Helang Botak (Bald Eagle) boleh hidup hingga 30tahun. Burung perliharaan bisanya hidup lebih lama. Kakatua boleh hidup hingga umur 80 tahun

Grasshopper in my Garden

Belalang Kunyit  (Valanga nigricornis) datang ke taman rumah saya
Yellow Grasshopper in my Garden
This yellow Grasshopper visited my garden recently . Hooped on the supporting plastic pole near the Nerium Oleander. It did not touch that poison leaf.
Catch it and put it in the plastic bag, then release it 4km from my garden to ensure it won't be back.
