Every year the Mynah Bird makes its love nest in the window of my store-room. I have posted slide show before of last year’s happy family but his time tragedy stuck twice.
First , in my absence the multi layers green nest was brutally ripped apart and thrown down the window by my FIL then he went to USA and I hoped that the Mynahs would nest again and they did.
A new smaller nest came up and soon there were three eggs . Beautiful blue ones. Within days a chick , fragile yet alert began its journey of life.
Unfortunately yesterday I found it hurt and lying low. I was concerned but could not do anything . By evening the chick was gone. Some predator took it away.
What could have come so high up and get inside the narrow window ? May be a mongoose ? I do not know.
The Mynah couple is a noisy protective duo still I heard no commotion . 😦
I just hope that the two eggs survive and the chicks remain well.
Will be uploading the pictures again.
A sad day for all of us at home.
Linking the last year’s love nest pictures . Watch the slide show to see life unfold at my home .
