Today the L&M leaves the hammer on the compound wall after he’s done using it and it is found by an inquisitive young Rufous Treepie. What follows is duly captured by yours truly due to sheer luck, only by stepping out on the balcony at the right moment.
What is this odd shaped thing?
Better check if anyone is around before I take a closer look.
There’s a Myna. Hope he doesn’t want it as well.
Phew, Myna has flown off. But I haven’t still figured this thing out.
It sure is hard and more than a mouthful!
May be pecking at it will help.
What if it were some kind of perch?
Hmm.. useless perch, it doesn’t sway in the breeze.
I am outta here. Tree branches are better any day.
