Birds are coming home

"Hundreds of mynas flock the trees in town every evening after foraging in the nearby paddy fields in the daytime. They are social animals, but they compete with each other, too, for a grasp to secure a good sleep.

"When recording, the recordist scrolled along the roadside, moving from a tree to another and back. Occasionally, slow motorbikes are heard passing by in this rather quiet little town, while a dozen of crows that were forced out of the trees by the mynas were heard in the background." Recorded by Chow Ow Wei.
