Nesting season

Posted by
Devi (Chennai, India) on 4 July 2015 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Crow's nest in our mango tree:) Yes I had to protect my head with an inverted bucket from the father crow who was trying to get me away !! I did look a sight walking around on the terrace with this umbrella on my head!

Great adventure with bucket over the head. A fine shot of these eggs in the nest. Lovely.
Have a nice weekend, Devi. :)

@Sam: Yes Sam :) The previous one I shot two years back with an orange colour bucket on my head had four eggs!! This one had just two. Thank you for the wish Sam..Planning to go to a village near Thiruvallur tomorrow to see Thee Midhi and talk to them who are going to walk over the burning coal and try and take a few shots...Hope Cosmic Dancers blesses me in my attempt..

Yes, crows can be very aggressive . . keep your tin hat handy !

@Ronnie 2¢: Yes Ronnie..Two years back I had the same problem but I really thought they won't attack me this year since I have been feeding them with rice grains and cooked rice !! Aw!!! Ungrateful winged friends!!!
