The Hooded Pitta is a regular summer visitor to the forests of Bangladesh. The species occurs in many countries in South and Southeast Asia but migrates to Bangladesh during the monsoon season. The species has distinctive features including a very short tail, striking wing feathers and a strange foraging behaviour. Photo: Sayam U Chowdhury

Boat on street...

Two firemen help people cross the waterlogged road using a towable tube in the city's Shantinagar area after heavy rain yesterday. Bri Gen Ali Ahmed Khan, director general of Fire Service and Civil Defence, said they bought towable tubes for the recent floods but are now deploying those in different areas of Dhaka and Chittagong to help people, especially the elderly, women and students. Such tubes were deployed in Mirpur, Notre Dame College area and Bangabhaban areas, he said. The picture was taken from the Facebook group “Traffic Alert”, posted by Rezwan Rahman Raj.

Risky tree!

A large tree branch hanging precariously at the corner of the police hospital in Fakirapool intersection of the capital. It may fall on commuters and pedestrians anytime, causing casualties. Though the branch snapped off the dead tree and fell on electric cables several weeks back, there is apparently no-one to remove it for ensuring public safety. The photo was taken on Tuesday.
