Yesterday while doing relief programs in the exclusion zone on Mount Merapi
in Central Java I did a quick bird count.

Yes there were still birds 3km's from the summit despite the eruptions from
3-4 weeks ago and the continual raining of ash and rumblings we experienced.

Swifts sp. - 100's

Fork-tailed swift - dozens.

House Sparrow - 4 bathing in the ash dust??

Javan Myna - 1 flock flew over

Javan Kingfisher - 1 heard

Spotted Dove - 1!!


No Leafbirds cause there were no leaves!!


Now for Bali!!
