It is 9.30 am. I was sitting out on my verandah when I saw a pale coloured bird fly into the divi-divi tree near me and two crows coming after it. Minutes later a tree pie flew there too. When I looked carefully, I realised the pale bird was a female Indian cuckoo--the koel. So naturally the crows were chasing it. But I couldn't quite see what the tree pie had to do there. Soon the tree pie flew off screaming. A little later the koel flew off and the crows sat there very triumphantly.
