Doves at Paddy Shell

Doves feedingDoves feed at an area which is called ‘Paddy Shell’. Paddy Shell gets its name because it is an area where the rice grain shells are discarded by the Coop Rice Mill. Paddy Shell is located just south of the Coop Rice Mill. Along with the shells bits of the rice get fed through to the heap and the doves (and other birds) feed on these. The heap can become quite mountainous from time to time until persons come and remove the shells by the bag or trailer loads. Cash crop farmers use the paddy shell to lay out on their plots and burn. Burning the shell on top of the soil enriches the soil and makes it better for planting. That Paddy Shell is at the low level in the photo means that several farmers recently removed large amounts of the paddy shell.
