If You Are Reluctant To Tell Stories

It is fun to see a bird on the jungle floor. It is even more excited to walk along with it.

We walked for about twenty feet, just like old friends do. And it went foraging occasionally while I was a mere spectator.

I did not talk for all the time, but this Puff-throated Babbler seemed to lean its head in such a way wanted to listen from me.

"I am too shy to tell stories outside my blog; sorry for that, my friend."

" No, no, not again. My stories always stuck when coming face-to-face with somebody. You will not succeed with your trick. "

"OK, I fully agree. You have a good voice to sing me a sweet song, and you are a brave bird."

(And somehow I know by now those were your songs that I used to listen in the jungle).

Wow... how nice to take a walk with a friend with a lovely voice. Is it some kind of thrush? I like the last picture- singing right to you!

What a charming little bird. I'm sure you had a nice walk with him. You took wonderful portraits of him.

Maybe the song of the bird was a story he was telling you. He's a good little bird to be friends with.

The Mangere bridge costed $230 millions dollars, and you are allowed to walk only once, you bet we all took a lot time to walk. LOL

Actually, they sealed off the other end so we had to walk back again.

The weather was good today, so lots of people and their dogs turned up.

You got some wonderful pictures of your bird companion. I'm glad the two of you had a good walk together and that he sang for you.
