What’s it like being a host to a family of birds taking occupancy at your home? Well, it was quite a learning and exciting experience for Walter, a resident of Cagayan de Oro and an animal enthusiast when a family of sunbirds locally known as “tamsi” took residency at his home garage during the start of the pandemic community quarantine last March of this year.
It was just an opportune time that Mother Nature gave him company being stuck at home.
For more than 3 months, he documented on how they built a nest at his house, how they raised their chicks and observed other interesting behaviors of these birds.
He made a 5-part video series on these birds on his YouTube channel named Urban Wilde CDO, a homegrown animal show which features stories and other related topics about animals thriving here in the city of Cagayan de Oro. You can check out more urban wildlife videos on his YouTube channel.
Watch this series of five videos below on how these birds found a home in Walter’s house/residence and in his heart.
