Here’s are some of the shots.
The Indian Grey Hornbills perched on a roadside ficus tree on the second day. There were 2 of them, no 3.... 4....5... and finally 6 of them on the same tree!!
The Brahminy Kite which posed for us for over 15 minutes
The Brown Shrike, which I initially mistook as White browed Bulbul :(
Black headed Oriole
Chestnut Headed Bee Eater
Oriental Magpie Robin, female.... the ones here were much bolder when compared to the ones I've seen around Bangalore.
Here’s the list of birds... this time around we didn’t aim at numbers, rather we did justice to whatever little we saw and confidently identified.
Hornbill, Indian Grey
Hornbill Malabar Pied (We spotted a pair flying very close for a few seconds, but couldn’t capture them)
Ibis, Oriental White
Bulbul, Red Whiskered
Bulbul, Red vented
Kingfisher, White throated
Wagtail, White browed
Bee eater, Little
Bee eater, Chestnut headed
Swift, House Swallow, Wire tailed
Pigeon, Yellow-legged Green
Crows, House, Jungle, Large-billed
Parakeet, Rose ringed
Pigeon, Blue rock
Oriole, Black headed
Robin, Oriental Magpie
Fantail, Couldn't Id which one
Flycatcher, Asian Paradise
Pond Heron, Indian
And heard Coppersmith Barbets and White cheeked Barbets
And this one we could not Id... It was perched quite far off, I felt the size was Bulbul+, we debated between Yellow Browed bulbul, White headed babbler, but feel it is neither now.... As per the experts, it is a Golden Oriole, female
And there were many more little birds and some big ones like eagles/harriers that we couldn’t Id, in spite of following the systematic process. May be we need some more time :). And I still don’t have a pair of binocs :(, but as the guru-ji says that’s not stopping us from birding :)
