This past tour was a revelation of birds. A number of resorts had quite striking birds on the islands. So much so that I have added a “Bird” tag to the blog.
Their presence added a somewhat unexpected colour and vibrancy to the island life that one grows accustomed to on the reef. Gangehi’s avian feature is a giant bird cage right by reception filled with a rainbow of parakeets and painted song birds. A sweet richly hued addition to an arrival welcome.
Angaga and Reethi also had birdcages with parakeets (budgies!) and I have seen youtube footage of a birdcage on Embudu also. Angaga had many breeding pairs whereas Reethi's collection was much smaller.
Thanks Heather. That's one of the advantages of the blog format in that people can comment to provide further info.
