TBG maintaince team hard at work all weekend and Monday. The second photo shows our nest tree - the branch had snapped just below where the nest entrance is.
The effects of the typhoon are not just broken branches or trees. The super wet weekend had sprouted mushrooms on a (dead) nest treee. According to a mushroom expert at TFRI, the mushroom species is Coprinus disseminatus (a.k.a. Little Helmet or Fairy Bonnet). We wonder if there some symbiotic relationship between these mushrooms and barbets?
After work, everyone in the office packed up and went to watch the movie "Up" in 3-D. I have to say it was one of the best cartoon movies I have seen in awhile, and I am glad to have done it with such a close group of co-wokers and friends!
