PADE - my entry for 19th July 2013

I'm part of PADE

Theme of 19th July is Caged.
My image for this theme is as follows: I have seen many people capturing innocent birds or they purchase these birds that are being caged illegally. When I asked few of them as to why they would keep them in cage then they gave me an answer that they really love those birds and they want to feed them as well. So for all such people I would request them to take a look at the following pic and you will clearly see that this bird is not being caged and neither is it purchased by me. I don't know the exact name of this bird, but I think it is Black Drongo which is rarely seen seeking nectar out of flower trees. In my balcony there is a hibiscus flower pot and it has several ants which might be of interest to this Black Drongo bird. Now if you take a closer look, I have tied 2 grapes to the balcony grill thinking that this bird or of other type will eat it. On that day I have kept an eye on it for the entire day, but only ants were attracted and no bird tried to taste it. But interesting thing was that the ants were eating those grapes and the small birds love to eat ants and that may be reason for this Black Drongo bird visiting my balcony garden again and again. 

You can see just below the bird, I have attached a cracked jar which is repaired and I use it for providing water for birds. So I would suggest every reader of this blog that if the birds like these are visiting your residential area then please try to make their visit count by providing some water and tiny amount of food. Also while placing a water container for birds you should take care that the container is being washed each day so that they always get fresh water. In this way, we can show our love towards such tiny birds and they will no longer be caged. 

If we really love birds, they don't need to be caged. 

Watch out  the following video to know which little birds visit my balcony garden.
