Bird watching has been the key aspect which made us develop this blog in-order to share the beautiful two-winged aves we come across during our nature trails… One of our key motives with respect to bird watching is to create awareness about the numerous species of birds that exist around us and how important it is to preserve nature in-order to ensure they do not face the fear of extinction.
For anyone who is into bird watching must be aware what exactly a “Lifer list” means. “Lifer” is a term used when you correctly identify a particular species of bird for the very 1st time. One may often face the problem of not knowing what is the name of a particular species of bird and that is where one has to refer a field guide book. There are numerous birding field guides available; out of which the Birds of Indian Subcontinent (2nd Rev) by Carol Inskipp, Richard Grimmet, Tim Inskipp is one of the best. We are maintaining our lifer list on ebird.org. One may also maintain lifer lists on other websites like bubo.org.
You can view all details about our sightings at this link – Lifer list.
