The People of Kentingan Village, Sleman, Living with Thousands of Blekok Birds (Jogja's 7 Unique And Traditional Things That You Can See, Try, And Enjoy)

People living side by side with their pets are something you might have seen every day, but what about people living side by side with thousands of wild animals? The people of Kentingan Village, Sleman, have been accustomed to that kind of life. For decades, people there have lived with thousands of Blekok birds (a species of heron) coming out of nowhere and building nests on their trees. Visiting this village, you can observe the life of these birds as they make nests and feed their hatchlings. The best time to come to this village is in the morning and in the afternoon. In the morning, the birds usually feed their hatchlings and fix the nests. Approaching noon, they will fly in flocks to the village's rice fields. In the afternoon, the birds will fly back home to their nests to feed the hatchlings and perhaps continue repairing the nests for a second time.

How to get there:
