A Failed Trip

Nothing much to write about the trip to Wat Thum Pah Plong few weeks ago actually. I went there with my dad and the weather was not so good. We only had just a few hours before the rain began to fall. There were several fruiting trees but not so many birds visited them just because of the bad weather. There's even a fruiting fig tree near the pagoda, but we found exactly no bird coming to eat at all. At least, I saw a Blue-eared Barbet (Megalaima australis) which is not very common around here, coming to eat the fruiting Bohd tree near the parking lot. I've got a few landscape and bird shots to share with all of you here.

And a very nice idea preventing the temple's floor from all of the House Swifts' droppings

In Hokkaido when Swallows nest in public places they sometimes use upturned umbrellas to catch the droppings.........

Haha that's also a nice idea! Must look a bit funny, I think.
