Another Interesting Tree With The Power Of Pulling Swiftlet !!!

(Another tree in a swamp with lots of swiftlet activities)

While waiting for the gate to open I took a short trip along the Jalan Sungai at Parit Buntar Perak.

It was on August 12, 2012 early morning about 8:00am.

What I was trying to look out for was any activities that are related to those swiftlet in the area.

The small road was running beside a 100 feet wide river and there were a number of tall trees.

Among the many interesting observations were two strange things.

Two special trees that attract many swiftlet above both of them.

The fist tree was inside a deep swampy area and I could not go nearer.

However this second tree is interesting and closed to the road which I was driving.

I took some photos and video clips that tell you a bit about the activities and the tree.

From far the tree looks very normal but the number of swiftlet flying above and around it is so strange.

I went closer and filmed the activities at a closer range.

I did ask two elderly ladies that was sweeping their house yard.

They claimed that the tree is called Jejawi.  A very strange name.

I went closer to look at the trunk and I think the tree name should be a "Strangler".

It seems that this tree was strangling an old Palm Oil tree to death.

When young it must have be growing on the palm oil tree bark and once those long roots reached the ground they can be nasty.

Have a good look at these pictures and those birds flying above the "Strangler" tree.

This exposed part of the palm oil trunk closed to the floor level.

Confirmed with little doubt that the palm oil tree is inside the strangler tree roots.
