Little Egret & Pond Heron - Memory at Old Tree

This image of Little Egret and Pond Heron perched at an old teak tree at my backyard will remain in my memory. That Old Teak Tree is now gone. My neighbor chopped it down last Sunday.

Sorry about the tree, that's a bummer. <:(
I think your "pond heron" might actually be a snowy egret, however. The yellow feet suggest as much, anyway...

Ouch! Is it the magical tree that have brought dozens of birds to your backyard?? oh no...

Wow it looks like they used a dull hatchet to cut it down. We sometimes grow vines over stumps like that.

Thank ALL for your kind words.

My backyard landscape and birding will never be the same without that tree.
I always looking up at that tree when I was at the kitchen, washing dishes or some thing. It just a reflex or habit for the past one year. I still automatically look out in that direction, but find the empty space and my heart feel emptiness, oh, oh!
The "petai" Parkia speciosa tree (where I got a series of Gold-whiskered barbet eating on Flowerpecker) also gone.
They did that while I was away at Temerloh at my in-law house and birding.
Actually all that trees situated on the river reserve land/government land, and they take the opportunity to clear it off when the contractor clean the river to prevent the flood.
