Another sad ending… a few days ago, I came back from a trip and eagerly went to look at the coconut palm….and found no eggs in the nest or female kite, either…and over a period of time, I realize that the eggs have probably been predated (by crows?) and the female kite has abandoned the nest….
I’ve been noticing for the past decade or more, that human males seem to be evolving towards less hair on their heads. Baldness has always been around, but it was generally associated with middle to old age; but now I find, more and more, that young men, even in their mid-twenties, are either thinning or balding altogether. Could this be due to stressful lifestyles, detergent-based shampoos, or evolution?
Some of the common birds are also the most colourful…here is the Purple Moorhen, also called the Purple Swamphen , a frequent sight amongst the waterbodies in and around Bangalore:
