squirrel, pigeon and parrot at Lalbagh

Dec 26, 2014
Found these lively creatures having breakfast of grains.. rice, wheat, maize, ragi, jowar.. There are spots in Lalbagh which have become feeding spots. Morning walkers from surrounding localities bring bags of grains and drop them at the spots. The largest spot is dominated by pigeons. Then there are smaller spots where parrots, crows and squirrels are also seen. These creatures spend time peacefully, rarely they fight over sharing the grains. Here we go..

sweet little squirrel nibbling at a grain of maize
looking for some buried stuff
pigeon dropped the maize, not edible? not tasty?
a short stroll and..
searching for grain on a tree, perhaps something in the valley
a parrot wishing it had reached a moment earlier
pigeon's feet slips and flaps its wings to regain balance; parrot is startled
regains its composure; looks at the pigeon having breakfast

waiting patiently for the pigeon leave..
Found my favourite tree from childhood days, I did not know its name back then but I imagined them as drum sticks.. the type which are used in pairs to bang both sides of the big drum.. boom boom boom
