I'm so glad you guys got to see them!

P.S. this is a known colony in residence in the Kebun Raya, which is managed by LIPI, so geolocation doesn't really need to be obscured.

The 'Near and Threatened' Red List status automatically obscures.....

Ah right. I forgot IUCN finally dropped it down from LC the last cycle

Ran into @stsang on the metro this morning and she mentioned this and other Indonesian observations, which prompted me to go through them! Very cool. Any seeds too! Any thoughts on what fruit they were eating?

I should have known you would notice the bat-dispersed seeds!

These look like they are from figs that are grown around the area, but there are also various Syzygium species planted around the botanical garden (and they're in the midst of a grove of them in this new roost). There are also some cultivated guava a little bit of a ways from the garden.
