Spring!

February is such a short month but eventful though. Before I yak on, just want to remember these important dates:

20 Feb 2010 - In memory of Pa Pa who has left us for 3 years already.
16 Feb 2010 - My 1st blog anniversary!

The Lunar New Year has come and (almost) gone but Spring is in the air as you can see birds busily procreating during this period.

Read in my Bro #1's blog that 2 pairs of crows (!) made their nests near his flat, one of which is only about 5m away from his balcony! Dear readers, you know how I feel about crows from my close encounter with them years back. Though my Bro #1 (who heard from his pastor) mentioned that crows (ravens) are actually a very misunderstood bird of blessing, I have yet to be converted :).

Anyway since we are on this topic about birds, last week while looking for some blank CDs to copy songs for my brothers, I found this DVD with this interesting long-forgotten video:

I believe this is a Sun Bird (do correct me if I am wrong as I am not familiar with them)? This bird actually built its nest on an almost dead pomegranate plant abandoned by my neighbour outside my house. The initial part of the video shows the mother bird feeding its baby. But did you notice after the feeding, the mother bird did not leave immediately but instead waited for the baby bird to turn around & poop & then caught the poop with its beak before flying off? You can see this around the 00:55 ~ 00:56 mark. Talking about good service! :D

So before I leave, here's a big black bird of blessing which I sewed using a T-shirt I've never worn (thought I should emphasize this in case you think the doll smells!):
