Birds and berries

The Indian Banyan or Ficus benghalensis bears fruits that are red, luscious and irresistible . The white eared bulbul, the tiny house sparrows, mynas and other birds cannot resist them . These are supposed to have several medicinal properties too. The seeds of banyans are dispersed by these fruit-eating birds.
