The human habitats of tropical Asia are widespread and include farms, gardens, villages and even cities. While they are not as diverse as surrounding rainforest and woodlands, they host a variety of introduced and native flora and fauna...
Hevea brasilensis, 'Rubber Tree' with latex (Bukit Lawang, Indonesia).
Ficus religiosa, 'Bodhi Tree', 'Buddha Fig'. Leaves have very long thin drip-tip. Often planted around temples.
Unonia hierta, 'Yellow Pansy'.
Halcyon smyrnensis, 'White-throated/breasted Kingfisher'. Found near water and around small settlements, from middle east across Asia to Bali. Often seen perched on wires. In the Philippines it is the similar Halcyon gularis 'Brown-breasted Kingfisher'
Upupa epops, 'Eurasian Hoopoe'.
Oriolus xanthornus, 'Black-hooded Oriole'.
Lanius schach, 'Long-tailed Shrike'/'Rufous-backed Shrike'. A very widespread native bird found south to New Guinea.
Crypsirina temia, 'Racket-tailed Treepie'. In poor light, as in this photograph, these birds appear quite dark and dull, however, in good light they are a much more attractive glossy green.
Pycnonotus cafer, 'Red-vented Bulbul'. A native bird that has also become an introduction outside it's range.
Argya affinis, 'Yellow-billed Babbler'.
'Common/Indian Mynah' nesting in wall.
