on 1st September 2013

“This picture, taken today [19th August 2013] at Velocity junction. Less than 100 m from where I first saw these birds [mynas] taking a sip from air con drip off,” wrote Jeremy Lee. “These two birds both took a quick sip before going about their business at the side of the road.”

Jeremy’s earlier post of these mynas doing the same thing can be viewed HERE. Sunbirds similarly take water droplets from air conditioning drainage pipe HERE.
