Demalichcha is one of the most frequent visitors to my home garden located in a costal town. They usually arrive around eight in the morning in a flock of about 15 - 20 birds. I can never ignore them even if I wanted to, because they make sure I am woken up from my Sunday morning slumber. One curious observation I have made is that there are many other kinds of birds that accompany this flock such as the Woodpecker, Brown headed barbet, Kingfisher and Black hooded oriole. They move along with the Babbler flock from one garden to another (till an irritable dog decides to break the happy gathering). Could anyone explain this phenomenon ?
