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.

Journey was fruitful in terms of birding as well as spotting animals.And of course Amrabad Tiger Reserve Safari was great experience in itself and additional treat  .The Safari consists of jeep ride for one hour take you inside the forest area and peak point ,from where one can have bird view at Nallamalla forest,and that’s amazing,just hope its always preserved and be in its raw form.

  1. I have so many birds, yet the Blue Rock Thrush is missing from my list - even though it is so common. Nice, you spotted quite a variety in Srisailam.
