Several birds observed foraging on mulberry bush berries.
Known to locals as the 'Five colour bird'.
Noisy at times, its behaviour has always been endearing - while seen in many locations of my April visit, never failed to enjoy looking and checking out what these colourful birds were up to. - DO'N
