Thursday~August 8 ~2008
We at Softlife have decided to make bird watching our focus du jour. We feel the need for a meditative, peaceful research endeavor. A little R&R is in order.
This morning we spotted an Angora Bellied Love Bird.Let's zoom in for a closer look.
Here we can see it about to take flight...
The primary food source of this particular species of Love Birdis the tiny insects that feed on decaying forest debris.
Oh the web of life!
We were quite surprised to findthat the nest of this particular Angora Belly was not in the forest canopy as we had assumed, but under the porch of a run down house. This seems to us to be a vulnerable hideaway for a bird, but obviously we still have much to learn about this small avian.
