16th May 2010, Kemensah, Selangor.
Haha……, I know what you must be thinking. It’s Madi and his Kelantanese humour again, he’s pulling our legs! What nest, what egg?
Patience and all will be revealed. OK , from a different angle. A single white egg on a tiny nest superglued to the branch of a Rambutan tree right in the middle of a vehicle trail hardly 12 feet from the ground. I don’t know how many days she’d been incubating the egg but I will be following the progress over the next few weeks.
On my way out of Kemensah I noticed that the male ( with rufous ear covert) had taken the position over the egg.
19th May 2010 Wednesday: Went into Kemensah after work to check the nest at about 5.45pm. Phew, it’s still there. The male was on duty. No sign that the egg had hatched.
Next checkup will be on Saturday
