A Weird Thing That Happened In A BH !!!
I wanted to visit this BH at Parit Buntar, Perak for some time now.
The owner was not satisfied with the number of birds residing in his BH and wanted some input on what he can do.
Since I was in Taiping, Perak about 30 minutes away I decided to drop by and meet him at his BH.
He was busy with his phone talking to his clients and I took the opportunity to enter the BH and see if there was any improvements on the nests and the floor (bird shit).
The first place that I usually will explore first was the monkey house areas.
To know if those birds are entering or not is to look at the four walls of it.
Usually if there are lots of birds entering the walls will be full of territorial shit markings. Those swiftlet will make every attempt to throw their shit onto the wall to mark it as a place they have entered and explored.
The larger the numbers the better condition is your BH.
The other thing to observe is the accumulation of shit below those external sound tweeters. They will usually hang on those external sound tweeters and shit a few drops onto the floor. If they like the sound they will stay until the sound is off.
This was where a weird thing happened.
After looking at the four monkey house walls I saw something on the wall closed to an external sound tweeter.
It looks like a dead bird.
Upon scrutinizing I think she must be dead for almost a week or two. The carcass seems to have some mould or fungus on it.
She was about two inches away from the tweeter and on the wall.
The wall was smooth and there is no way that her leg was caught on any thing. The owner touched it and gently remove her body. There was no sign of her leg being caught in any crevices or strings or holes.
She was dead and must be for some reason.
It could be the external sound played on the tweeter. But it does not make any sense since it will be off by 8:00 pm.
If she stays there on the same spot for three days or so without getting food she will be dead.
Maybe she was injured and she could no longer fly. This might be a great possibility and I pity her.
Maybe she was too old to fly and chose to die beside the tweeter? The sound must be so good so much so she chose to die beside it.
This is a strange event and I just wanted to share with all my blog readers.
There are more weird stuff and you will be surprise to count the number of weird things happening in your BH.
Remember everything that happened have some reasons and it will be nice if you can learn and understand why those weird thing happened.
Open you eyes and your mind and try to figure out those reasons when you come across some strange phenomena in your BH.
If you are not sure send the story to me plus some photos and I might give you my ideas on why those birds are behaving in such.
Have a good and productive day ahead.
I shall be travelling to Semporna Sabah on 13th - 16th December and 16-18 in Kota Kinabalu.
If you wish to meet me please let me know. So far two person have book me for a cup of coffee.
