Love Birds in My Garden

My garden was blooming with flowers recently when this pair of love birds decided to build their love nest in my garden. I spotted them in the morning and late evening almost everyday.

After surveying for a few days, they decided to build their love nest on my potted palm, a mere 5 feet away from the main door of the house. It's kinda strange why they choose the spot as me and my wife would pass by so frequently everyday going out and coming in to the house. I guess they feel secured with our presence.

Sometimes they would rest at the brim of this lily pot, and had some drink.

Otherwise, they would spend their time eating the fruits of melastoma.

The male was always watchful.

And on one fine morning around 7am, right before i leave home for work, the female stroke a beautiful pose on the branch. I quickly grabbed my camera and shot these picture. Simply beautiful.


A week later, the laid their eggs. And in another couple of weeks, the chicks flew away with their parents. Such is the life of birds. The freedom that God gave them was clearly demonstrated. We, precious in God's eye, should shine bright in our life.
