Another stunning but unknown bird, not listed in Collins’ Birds of Western and Central Africa takes a sip of water from the bird baths that Birgit instigated a few years ago. It is perhaps because of these that Djenne Djenno’s garden has become a haven for birds. Birgit spends hours sitting quietly under the Flamboyant tree waiting for photo opportunities.
Birgit is gone until next year. Keita is in Segou. I sat all alone on my sunset terrace last night, and had dinner in the garden alone, still surrounded by the twinkling Christmas fairy lights in the trees. I was not sad exactly but invaded by a sense of nostalgia and feeling a little reluctant to begin the new year …
