I was busy chatting when automatically I looked into the balcony and here is what I found.
Yesss.. on the very first day..
I dont know many birds by name. Is this one dove? The first thought when i spotted it was'shit I am not wearing glasses and the camera is on the floor. If I get up from the couch, will the bird fly away??' So I sat quietly without moving for a minute coz it was looking here and there to ensure there is no trap and the last thing I wanted to happen was it to fly back getting scared right then.
After some time, when i found the bird sitting comfortably, I lifted off the laptop in slow motion, picked up the camera and went to the glass door in order to take a pic. The brave bird didnt move.. I cant believe that it kept sitting there for total 15 minutes. The pictures i clicked have time stamp which tells me so.
She ate from the tray first and then picked up somethings from the soil into the beak. When it started fiddling with the table rose leaves, i told myself i wont let it do that in the second visit. But for today anything n everything was fine.
So you can see how thrilled I am... now only if I had a better camera.. sigh!
