My ‘Window With A (Green) View’!

IndiBlogger Badge                         

This is something I really like to write about – my window with a view, a green view. Though our city Mumbai is infamous as a concrete jungle, my corner of this metro is exception to this rule, at least till now.  I have already written a posts about the pleasant greenery outside my window and also about My Almond Tree.

But there are also other trees, apart from the Badam tree. Just next to it and as big as the almond tree is the Neem tree. Right since the ancient times, our science books have mentioned the importance of this tree. You get the purest of air if there is a Neem tree in your courtyard; and here it is bang opposite my window.

Then there is a small guava tree just beneath the almond tree. Both the neem and guava (and also almond) trees play host to so many feathered visitors. Common crows and pigeons are aplenty. The chirpy sparrows occupy the branches as if sitting in a school classroom. Sighting a Bharadwaj bird (as known locally) or Greater coucal / crow pheasant is considered auspicious by some people. Here is our friend which regularly visits neem branches just opposite my window.

The guava tree lures many groups of parrots who peacefully enjoy the fruit. Till I actually observed it from close quarters, I never knew that the parrots hold their fruit in one claw, just like humans holding a fruit in a hand, and then bend their heads to eat it. (see the picture).

Then there are squirrels, mynahs, bulbuls…..too quick to capture in frame. Time flies and one wouldn’t know how the minutes turned to hours while watching

Truly, my window is a window to beautiful green world out there.

      Oh! What a wonderful description of the nature! The more one observes it, the more one falls in love with is obvious that those who are sensitive could understand these small pleasures of life!

    The balcony in our 8th floor apartment also overlooks a green lung. But unfortunately a couple of months back a construction company purchased the land and has started building an apartment building there. We are also visited by several feathered friends. We have our wall a/c installed in the balcony and a very small bird couple (I could not find out what kind they were) always build their next in a nook of the a/c. Initially I was worried that they may get harmed but nothing seemed to happen and now we always find a nest after the monsoons in that spot.

      Having the company of tiny birds sounds quite wonderful! It is the same story in all the cities; we too are afraid of loosing this greenery to developing construction. Thank you so much for reading the post and sharing your valuable views 🙂

    It’s a blessing to have green space in a big metro. You’re lucky. I love birds. I bet the view from your window is nothing less than nirvana in Mumbai.
