Feeding Frenzy

Just last month, the cinnamon trees at Poring Hot Springs in Kinabalu Park attracted a non-stop parade of birds.  No wonder, these birds can’t resist the ripe fruits of these trees.  I had a taste of the fruits and immediately decided they won’t feature in my diet.  But the constant frenzy that is the feeding birds would have you think that those would be the last fruits that the birds are going to feed on.  Either that or there is a chemical in there which made the birds hyper.  There were bulbuls (counted 7 species), flowerpeckers, Asian Fairy Bluebirds, barbets, and even migrants like the Eye-browed Thrush and Blue and White Flycatcher.

A secret (maybe not), feeding trees like those at Poring make the work of a bird guide so easy.
