Bangkok watch

A while ago an old house diagonally opposite to my place in Bangkok was demolished by its new owners, and when I returned from India I found a new 3-storey construction well on its way.

I also returned to find another construction – a nest in a creeper on my balcony that overlooks the construction site. Not disturbed by the constant noise from across, the bird-parents have brought 2 babies into the world, watched over and fed them, and diligently taught them to spread their wings and fly, which they did 2 days ago before the first heavy rain storm of the season hit Bangkok.

I saw one of them again today, perched on the tree outside the bedroom window and watched over by the mother.

The cycle of nature continues undisturbed.
