Default Balinese Birds

Just back from a few days Bali.

Beautiful birds. What’s not to like?!

Pic 1 A Spotted Dove
Pics 4&6 I think this is a Black-Crowned Night Heron. I was very lucky to spot her resting in the tree.
Pic 8 A Pond Heron.
Pic 9 A White Heron. Sadly I only had my phone camera that time.

Better to follow JC3's adventures in Indonesia...or even mine (see post #3) rather than this....

hahaha...you are probably correct and I bow to your superior knowledge and photos of lovely birds.
I was an aviator, not an aviarist, so aware that Titties and Tatas are members of the Mammary family.... but recall that the Hooters belong to the Knocker group...
There is a difference..some are bigger than others..

Don’t worry IVV, 5 out of 4 people have problems with math.

Steady, such questions could lead me astray.
I replied, read the Site Rules again, and hit delete.
What photos are you looking at?!

Oh well, here’s a different answer to your question.

Ah yes, ...here we are, photo No. 6.

Default Re: Balinese Birds

I came across this:-

Believed to be monogamous, the males perform an elaborate courtship ritual during breeding season, and present sticks to their chosen female. When the pair bond is formed, their legs blush a pinkish-red.

Cue Davita...

I trust you are not suggesting Davita also performs an elaborate courtship ritual at night, clappers his bill as he walks in a crouch, sings and dances, hissing as he rocks from foot to foot. Or even tries it!

Why me?.....I think my breeding season demised over 20 years ago...but not been tested.
However, if my legs ever blush pinkish-red I'll call those Bali Birds. I heard they nest in the Sky Garden in Kuta.....maybe JC3 went birdwatching there on his recent visit...
