Oriental White-eye and Indian Coral Tree

Zosterops palpebrosus on Erythrina variegata

Description:

Oriental White-eyes are small passerine birds that live in groups. They forage together for nectar and little insects. They call constantly as they forage, a soft cheerful nasal tweet. The Indian Coral Tree is a thorny deciduous tree that blooms in February-March. The flowers attract a lot of birds. The tree sheds all its leaves when it flowers.
