Since the day I reached it was raining, with some breaks in between, however the rain could not discourage or prevent the cute birds and squirrels from feeding.

The squirrels often compete with the birds to get their share of food, and as I observed they succeeded if the birds were smaller in size, less aggressive or more in numbers.

Birds usually target their food sitting in a tree branch far away, then they will land in a nearby branch of the food source and then finally come to get the food. They also like to feed together with their partner. They often like to shower after feeding.

Three main types of food were given by the pond owners, broken corn, worms and apple. I noticed that some species like certain kind of food more than the others, and some try more than one type of food.

I was bit unhappy with the continued rain for the entire trip, as low light inside dense forest won’t give me the highest quality images and fast shutter speed, however I was pleasantly surprised how those rain drops added to the atmosphere in my images.
