Bird watching is something which is part of each and every trip of ours; be it a drive through ghats or a trek. Anyone who is into birdwatching must be pretty aware what exactly a “Lifer list” means. We have identified close to 100 birds till now (endemic as well as migratory) and will always be on a look out to keep adding to our Lifer list..
Locations Covered: Western Ghats
Camera: Sony HX60V / Canon 60D with EF-S 55-250 mm IS II
Bionaculars: Celestron Upclose G2 – 7×35
Reference: Birds of India by Dr. Salim Ali.
Note that many of the images are record shots / highly cropped photos taken from quite some distance. We do not believe in disturbing the birds and running after them just to get a better shot. However, we have been lucky sometimes to get few good shots which can be viewed in the Bird Gallery.
Please hover / click on the thumbnail in-order to see the name of the bird. In-case we have identified any bird incorrectly, do write to us and we shall correct it immediately.
