This idea came to me after watching Man Vs. Wild on the Discovery Channel. The episode was basically about Bear vs. the Mangroves in I believe Tailand? (Correct me if i’m wrong though!) I always thought of the mangroves as this beautiful tropical area, and inside of them it’s really sort of gross, the bacteria filled waters, all the dead roots and animals and bugs everywhere. I was sort of grossed out. At the same time, the mangroves are a haven for smaller marine life, and a safe breeding ground. These birds are all native birds to Mangroves in different regions. The Egret, Red Lory and Mangrove Pitta birds. I really like the way that it came out, and I hope you do to!
