You seem to be staying in a very rich environment what with the amount of varied plants that you have been posting and the birds that you have seen in a single morning. Envying you greatly….
It is a good example of interdependence of trees and birds.
Next year I will also give some days during the fruiting season
It will be nice if he provides still close up image of tree
To me the tree species seems to be Antidesma bunius. It is known as Bor-heloch in Assam. A good document on symbiosis. Thanks to …
pls share more photos having close view of the the leaves, fruits & flowers to help experts to identify the plant. The ID of the plant will help us.
Here some close view of the the leaves, fruits & trunk. Attachments (7).
Please find the details below:
After a long view and studying identification views by different group members, images depict an umbellules of more than 10 fruits. For my observations this plant should be Ilex umbellulata (Wall.) Loes. (Family: Aquifoliaceae) differing from other related species (Ilex godajam Colebr. ex Hook.f.) by its habit (a climber). For Antidesma bunius inflorescence is always terminal and axillary, simple, solitary or paired and long.
Synonym: Ilex sulcata Wall. ex Hook.f.
you would have a look if time permits !
