Welcome to Watery Wednesday! Not much water in these photos but the birds make these puddles a joy to see…!
The white-breasted water hen/Amauromis phoenicurus is now as common as the sparrows and the mynah. Shy and ever so furtive in its movements, it lives in the marshy areas in our neighbourhood. Earlier we could hear them, rather than actually see them. But now that more houses have come up leaving them little space, they have started venturing into our yards, foraging in our gardens…But they still nest in those small marshy patches that’ll surely vanish in the future. But till then the sight of these beautiful birds will always be welcome!
