The white-rumped shama (Copsychus malabaricus) is a small passerine bird of the family Muscicapidae. Native to densely vegetated habitats in the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia, its popularity as a cage-bird and songster has led to it being introduced elsewhere.
hey typically weigh between 28 and 34 g (1.0 and 1.2 oz) and are around 23–28 cm (9–11 in) in length. Males are glossy black with a chestnut belly and white feathers on the rump and outer tail. Females are more greyish-brown, and are typically shorter than males. Both sexes have a black bill and pink feet. Juveniles have a greyish-brown colouration, similar to that of the females, with a blotchy or spotted chest.
he white-rumped shama is shy and somewhat crepuscular but very territorial. The territories include a male and female during the breeding season with the males defending the territory averaging 0.09 ha in size, but each sex may have different territories when they are not breeding.
In South Asia, they breed from January to September but mainly in April to June laying a clutch of four or five eggs in a nest placed in the hollow of tree. During courtship, males pursue the female, alight above the female, give a shrill call, and then flick and fan out their tail feathers. This is followed by a rising and falling flight pattern by both sexes. If the male is unsuccessful, the female will threaten the male, gesturing with the mouth open.
The nest is built by the female alone while the male stands guard. The nests are mainly made of roots, leaves, ferns, and stems, and incubation lasts between 12 and 15 days and the nestling period averaged 12.4 days. Both adults feed the young although only the female incubates and broods. The eggs are white to light aqua, with variable shades of brown blotching, with dimensions of about 18 and 23 mm (0.7 and 0.9 in). Locations: Pulau Ubin, Singapore
“My mother is soil and rain,
clay, ash, sand, sun and moonlight.
My mother is a weeping willow—
strong, daring, dripping.
My mother is oceans so salty and wild
she can consume whole cities—
but, mostly, she chooses to be calm turquoise,
washing softly over toes in sand.
She is vast—
some places un-navigated.
She is offering, felt without words, sacred, and restful.
She grows life.” 🌏

Y es que gotas sobre gotas somos olas que hacen mares 🎶
Muchos dicen que los pequeños cambios no van a hacer gran diferencia.
Que para qué? Si los demás no hacen. .
Este mundo es de todos, si entendiéramos que todos estamos conectados, no hay barreras, no hay distinción de razas, especies, todos somos hermanos de espíritu. .
Porqué no tratar de vivir en la mayor armonía posible?
Sí se puede, yo era exceptica y me molestaba que mi hermana o mi papá se la pasaran diciéndome que le cerrara a la llave, que el aceite de palma, que apagara la luz, que las bolsas del súper, que la carne, que el consumismo. .
Es difícil cambiarnos el chip, y se que no vamos de la noche a la mañana ser plastic free, o veganos etc.
Pero gota a gota se hacen mares.
Todos esos animales que tanto nos gustan, esos paisajes que nos gustan contemplar, ese mar que nos gusta nadar, todo eso merece nuestro esfuerzo. .
Todos merecemos vivir en éste increíble planeta, somos uno.
Conozcan el chango proboscido.

Drop by drop, we are waves that build oceans 🎶.
They said that small changes wont make a big difference, why make an effort if they don’t do nothing? Why me? .
This planet belong to all of us, if we could understand we are all connected, there are no barriers, there are no distinction in races or specie, we are all soul sisters. .
Why not trying to live as much harmonious as posible?
We can do it.
I was skeptic, and got annoyed whe my sister use to tell me about closing the tap, pr my father telling me to turn off the lights, palm oil, plastic bags in the supermarket, beef, consumerism etc etc. .
I know is hard to change the micro chip.
That is not s change in matter of days, that tomorrow we all going to be plastic free etc.
But drop by drop? We build oceans. . All those animals we love, a beautiful landscape, swim in the ocean. All that is worthy. .
We all belong to the same place, we all are a whole #BloomingLife
