Mercury seems to rising all time high in Bangalore this summer,for past twelve years I have never seen such a hot March –April.I guess global warming is culprit,swing in deforestation activities around the city surely adding to current situation,in the name of development .Even weather is not sparing the outskirts where green belts charm is ineffective nowadays.
My main concern at current moment ,extreme summer leads to flying creatures invisible during the season.Luckily impromptu birding one evening turned out to be favorable and fruitful.
Expedition started with sight of Pied Kingfisher(seen first time) ,missed chance to capture it.Nevertheless other attraction of the day -
- Greater Coucal
- Cattle Egrets
- Red wattled Lapwing
- Common Coot
- Rose ringed parakeet
- Red vented Bulbul
- White throated Kingfisher
One of surprise of trip was black headed Cuckoo Shirke which were in flock of 15-20….
Brahminy hovering around the place and hunting down the fishes which we witnessed for around one hour,may be big family to support.I could capture brahminy in beautiful picturesque frame during sunset!! (First pic in blog)
Second was divine Sunset @ the place,fortunate to get awesome click-
And last icing on the cake was glimpse of spotted Owl,spotted it by just its dark shadow Bingo!!
Sharing some more Sunset moment of the day,unquestionably this was one peaceful sunset I lived!!
