Birding At Narsapur

 

It truly said world is very small place.Few years back during my search to find  name of bird which I clicked during my Munnar trip,came across beautiful birding Blog.And later got in touch with writer of blog through mail,now almost gap of almost two year got opportunity to meet Blogger,Birder and photography enthusiast  Sumeet along with his lovely wife Supriya.It was truly great knowledgeable birding experience with company of expertise,special thanks to both.It is challenging task to go for birding along with kids,yes quite tough to keep them quite,so that birds should not get disturbed forget about yourself.Anyways manage to click and do my bit.

As part of Migration season birding whole gang went and explore Narsapur forest along with my family.

Srisailam Wildlife and Birding Dairies

 

“I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, ‘This is what it is to be happy.’”
—Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar

Feel like adding birds ,animals,rivers to above quote.

Welcome to the new addition of greencraftingkid wildlife and birding adventure at Nallamalla forest,Eastern Ghat of India intensely thick green forest spread around the river Krishna and Pennar.Since place is covered by thick range of natural forest,heaven for birds and wildlife ,provides great habitat opportunity for different species of birds and animals.I was lucky to spot quite few number of species.
