Flights of Fancy eBook Excerpt: Olive Backed Sunbird Spotted in Maligcong, Bontoc

Yeah, I know!    Some smart aleck would just dismiss it as "it's just a sunbird" but I don't dismiss any bird as ordinary.    With vanishing habitats, fluctuating temperature and wonky weather, I take each bird that I see (yes, even the Eurasian Tree Sparrows I feed outside my window) as evidence of a miracle.   In Suzette's Homestay, the sunbirds comprise a wonderful coterie of happy, joyful, chorus line members who regularly visit the towering bamboo, the chili pepper plants, the guava and avocado trees, all the while chirping merrily to themselves or to the other birds who share in the bounty. | © 2019 Oggie Ramos | Taken with a Nikon B700, Handheld, Manual Mode
