With so many noni trees there is no dearth of cuckoos in our garden.Cuckoos love this fruit. Noni is packed with health properties and it is normally taken as fermented juice. Their chirps are soothing. They have different chirps and their mating chirps are the best What birds visit you?

In our garden the attraction is besides fruit trees the bird bath. We have many birds visiting us. I do not know how a Maya looks!

Sparrows are nowhere to be seen here. They used to be all over the place specially in grocery shops.

@arunima25 I do not know when it was the last time I saw them. We used to see them in grocery stores and the owners let them eat the grains left open there.

Interesting fruits! I take it the cuckoos don't say 'cuckoo' then?

@allknowing We have cuckoos but they are named after their call, you can listen to it here They are also famous for laying their eggs in other species' nests and getting them to rear their young.

@allknowing That is quite different, I wonder if it was named 'cuckoo' by Europeans? Does it have an Indian name?

I haven't got the foggiest idea what nonis are.The term isn't even in my dictionary. The birds I hear singing now are mainly blackbirds.

@allknowing Thank you. According to the link, noni grows in/on Pacific Islands, Southeast Asia, Australia, and India. Not surprisingly, I've never heard of the fruit. I live in Central Europe.

I love the chirping of cuckoo birds. We had a lot of them coming last year during lockdown. Now they don't visit much.

@allknowing That's sad. We have seen so many just disappearing over years. I was happy to see sparrows, parrots and cuckoos back during lockdown last year. But now back to only urban pigeons and bulbul sometimes.

I'm glad you are enjoying the birds. Apart from a couple of NZ native birds in the neighbours overhanging trees, we have mainly sparrows, blackbirds and thrushes, with an occasional starling.
