The ‘Himalayan’ Deodar Outside

Before  I pour myself a coffee in the morning, I sometimes find myself grabbing  my camera as  I just can’t ignore the latest arrival atop the Deodar tree outside my porch. Over the past couple of years, I have seen and heard multiple species of birds creating a ruckus with langurs sometimes foraging in the surrounding oaks or yellow throated pine martens scrambling up pines in search of  bird eggs and fledglings.  Hope you enjoy the photographs. They’re not the best quality because I’m way slower than my flighty subjects. While the majority of shots are taken from  my porch I have also included photographs of  birds from surrounding areas. Do let me know if I got the names wrong. I’m no expert!
