Trying to renew/re-design part of my garden can get difficult at the best of times but lately even more so.
I have a beautiful Leopard Tree in my back garden, lots of shade, lots of ‘pods’ dropped at certain times of the year but there is nothing more difficult than a Mynah bird building a nest then sitting on eggs so that their little baby birds will hatch and next year at this time of the year there will be more of them to stop my garden re-designing happening.
They are aggressive when near their nest. This nest is tucked into a part of a branch of the Leopard tree, not in close to the trunk but on the outer branches. So I have to walk so far from this area that they don’t feel the need to flutter, ‘click’ and warn me, attack me in other words.
Of course the area of the garden I’m re-designing is right under the Leopard tree, I’m putting paver paths to, through and around a garden.
I have been told these little Myna birds perform this nesting twice a year, we have already been through one of these events so hoping this will be the last for this season. The incubation period is 17 to 18 days and fledgling period is 22 to 24 days.
I’m counting the days….
