    Sandy! Hats off for such an entertaining suggestion. I am sporting a permanent smile since I read your response imagining the solution you suggested! You are right, we can have Rajkumar on one tree, MGR on the next, Balasaheb Thackrey on the third........Rahul Gandhi...:smash2: I wonder if Rahul Gandhi poster can protect anything at all!

    Geets, I truly enjoy the saga of your egrets. I'm hoping to see more nature articles from you. :thumbsup:

    BTW have you been to the Sewri mud flats?

    Yeah, @Frangipani, that's life; Kabhi khushi, Kabhi gham. We Indians, specifically Hindus believe in Animism or nature worship. Yet modern commercial outlook is destroying everything.

    You are not alone! 'Merciless tree-hacking' by municipal agents seems to be a widespread disease. Here's news of some compatriots fighting the good fight, from the New York Times this morning. Enjoy! :lol:

    Thanks for the interesting share. Tree hacking from time to time is essential but indescriminate and unscientific hacking is not. That feeling of powerlessness is tough to accept.
