The story of life 生命的故事
A month ago, I found a Merbok nest with 2 eggs on my bougainvillea tree. Male and female took turn hatching.
Few days into Chinese New Year, 2 dragon babies were hatched. Their parents took turn to feed them.
About 8 days later, with feather fully grown, the bird-lings few off. They stayed on trees nearby under their parents' watchful eyes. They left behind an empty nest.
A week later, a new couple came to inspect the empty nest, and found it to be good and suitable as their honeymoon suite. They did some minor repair and adjustment and singing loudly Gu Gu Gu Gu...
Yesterday, I found 2 eggs were laid .... a new cycle of life begins! ( few more pics in Facebook)
Rain or shine, 14 days of hatching
