It's dark when I leave for work........ then it's dark when I return. [Retired readers will just have to image this, if they can't remember how bad it was].
The only wildlife I see during the week are moths that fly indoors during this unusually warm spell, like the one above that might be a Feathered Thorn, nicely posed on the food mixer.
So I'll resort to trawling the net for entertainment:
I remember seeing footage of Umbrella Herons in my early days, and their behaviour was so unusual that it made me actually think of 'behaviour' - instead of doing the things that birds usually did, like pecking around randomly, they were clearly following a precise strategy. This then got me thinking (slowly and laboriously) that other birds carry out activities that are more deliberate than had previously been apparent.
I'm not saying I was advanced in this line of thinking, just that the Umbrella Bird made me think differently.
Similarly, an early stay in Singapore taught me that birds (in this case Mynah birds) can talk, which is a skill that had been honed by Lyrebirds.
