Austin Java on Barton Springs Rd. In Austin of course..:) Great coffee and hand made Poptarts..:) Life is good. All kidding a side, it is a great place to get coffee, and all there locations have cool atmospheres. The food..Not so much..;) In fact, the food isn't that great in any of there locations. But, hay, they look cool.

Native to Indonesia where it is close to endangered, the Java Sparrow was introduced to other places, including Hawaii, Japan, and the Caribbean where the bird is doing very well. The flocks can exceed 200 individuals.They build a nest from grass in bushes and tree cavities. Chicks take a long 2 to 3 weeks to fledge. Taken at a bird sanctuary in Niagara Falls, Canada.

 

The Java Sparrow (Padda oryzivora) is a native of Indonesia, particularly Bali and Java. It lives in large flocks of up to 100 birds in both woodland and around rice paddies and rice is its staple diet. It is popular as a pet and has been introduced to other countries including the USA and India but it is declining in numbers due to trapping.

In the foreground is Mount Batok (2,440 m), a perfectly shaped but not active volcano. The rather small steaming crater to the left is the active Bromo Volcano (2,329 m). And the impressive volcano in the background is Mount Semeru (3,676 m). Morning mist covers Segara Wedi, the so-called "Sea of Sands".

 

Many thanks for your visits / comments / faves!

Not so well visible, but in the right corner is Borobudur. In the background is Mount Merapi volcano. You can hike there starting 10 pm and lasting 12 hours, but I won't do it.

 

My apologies if I'm slow commenting, I'm relying on a very weak wifi, which seems quite normal if you travel.

Wikipedia:

Borobudur, or Barabudur, is a 9th-century Mahayana Buddhist Temple in Magelang, Central Java, Indonesia. The monument consists of nine stacked platforms, six square and three circular, topped by a central dome. The temple is decorated with 2,672 relief panels and 504 Buddha statues. The central dome is surrounded by 72 Buddha statues, each seated inside a perforated stupa. It is the world's largest Buddhist temple, as well as one of the greatest Buddhist monuments in the world.

 

Mount Merapi, Gunung Merapi (literally Fire Mountain in Indonesian and Javanese), is an active stratovolcano located on the border between Central Java and Yogyakarta, Indonesia. It is the most active volcano in Indonesia and has erupted regularly since 1548.

Amsterdam - Java-eiland.

 

Java-eiland (literally, "Java Island") is located on a peninsula, surrounded on three sides by water and on the east by the KNSM Island.

The peninsula was created by dredging water at the end of the 19th century and was used for shipping services. The Stoomvaart Maatschappij Nederland was located here which ran services to the Dutch East Indies.

The name "Java Island" was given to the area when it was designated for housing in the 1990s (Wikipedia).

Maui Hawaii.

The Java sparrow is about 15 to 17 cm (5.9 to 6.7 in) in length from the beak to its tip of tail feathers. Although only about the size of a house sparrow, it may be the largest species in the estrildid family. The adult is unmistakable, with its grey upperparts and breast, pink belly, white-cheeked black head, red eye-ring, pink feet and thick red bill.

 

Both sexes are similar. Immature birds have brown upperparts and pale brown underparts, and a plain head. Very young birds have a black beak with a pink base.

 

Many thanks to all who take the time to view, comment and fave my images. Enjoy the day.
