Man VS Crow (Winter In Bangladesh)

A man in lungi is scoring the trunk of the date tree to gather syrup, which is Bangladesh version of maple syrup. Date syrup is also used to make molasses, which makes their pitha (rice cake) really tasty.

As soon as the man moves on to another tree, crows take his place in search of the sweet delight.


  1. wow coconut! it's nice to see the tree of life in other countries! i thought it only lives in the philippines.

    nway, thanks for your comment on my recent post about church visits. here's my reply:

    photo cache, wow! it's good to know, we both have the same patron saint. my mom had me drink the water from the holy spring naman kaya gumaling ang asthma ko. miracles do work, we just have to believe!

  2. oh my, it's date tree pala. i thought it's coconut! they look the same, maybe because they come from the same family.

    family tree? hehehe!

  3. Hi from Lloyd and Ranger: I wanted to let you know that I started a new job three weeks ago not only is it a new job with a different company it is a completely new career, that I have never done before, so when I get home at night I don’t have much energy left. Things are getting better and my days are running a bit smother now, so I want to start posting again, and visiting and commenting on everyone’s blog. When I visit your blog my comments might be a bit short if so it is just a time issue not that I am not interested but at least you will know I was there, I know as time goes on and I learn my job that things will get easier, it is sure a lot harder at age 55 than it was when I was in my twenty’s, I hope to post something new this week so please keep checking back. Ranger and I want to thank everyone for visiting our blog and we hope to be roaming again soon.
    Ranger and Lloyd.

  4. That is an interesting way of climbing the trees...
    Indeed it is a bit the same system as gather sap from coconut trees in the Philippines.

  5. It reminds me of Filipinos climbing coconut trees. Amazing how effortlessly they do it.

  6. I would love to see him extract the syrup. I rather think it's fascinating.

    Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and for leaving your comments. Do visit again! Hope you're enjoying your week. Feels like Friday already to me!
