|Adult Cuckoos (Asian Koel) feed mostly on fruits; the scientific term is 'Frugivorus'|
This is the 101th photo post of ClickingPhotos and my first blog post of 2015! Hope 2015 started smoothly (never mind, I'm not so comfortable with words like 'rocking') for you. Valentine's Day, being merely a month away I guess it's not the appropriate time to wish you all a belated happy new year (Sigh.. pardon my inability to turn up in the middle). Although I have some trip photos ready, I felt like starting the year with avian pictures. This is definitely a complain (to whom it may concern)- red eyed cuckoos are biggest consumers/looters of our garden papayas. What I hate most is, they leave ripe papayas half eaten, as if I'm suppose to take the remaining as divine 'Prasad'. Cuckoos sitting on papaya stalks look photogenic but for the owner of those trees they're quite villainous. I took these shots from the bathroom. I really have no idea why the cuckoo is looking more bluish than it actually was (It is not due to my image-editing for sure)! Probably next photo post shall have few of my travel photos. See you friends.
