It is said after the rain there will be a rainbow, but for birders after the rain there are birds. When the sun starts to shine after the rain, most birds will come out perching upon tree tops. It is time to dry their feathers. Branches with clear open space are preferred. When one is found, a bird would start preening and sunbathing for quite some time. Just as today in Phutthamonthon with the Ashy Drongo and the Lineated Barbet.
