The neighbour's papaya was still attracting birds today. This female Asian Koel (Eudynamys scolopaceus) kept coming back to feed on it during the day.

@sohkamyung Ja ja! It's like bears and fruit trees here. Well, you didn't pick it and set a table for them, what do you expect? :-)

@gemlog Heh. 🙂

But I think bears will find climbing a papaya tricky. The trunk is pretty slender and the neighbour's one is quite tall: I think this one was two stories high.

@sohkamyung It is so cool how ecology fits everything together.
Where I live we have neither papayas or asian koel.
We have berries, salmon and bears instead - and much else! Moose, wolves, eagles, hawks, deer...
I don't know if you've noticed, because I don't have a good camera or an eye like yours, but I try to convey the riot of life where I live too.
I promise not to send you any grizzly bears to try climbing your papayas. Would you like a moose though?

@aurochs Glad you like the pics.

Out of curiosity, where did you last see Koels?

@sohkamyung In They are great! actually in Mai-po reserve, Hong Kong
