Painted Stork

Painted Stork

Last Saturday, we set out early AM by road towards Bhigwan.

4-5 hours later we were at Kumbhargaon, a little village.

Sanjay, a resident who owns a few boats, took us for an hour and half on the waterbody along the village.

The bird life was rich and thriving: everything from Slender Billed Gulls to Painted Storks, Flamingos, Black Ibis, Asian Openbill Stork, Glossy Ibis, Black Winged Stilt and more.

Here’s an image of  a Painted Stork as it approached the water for a landing.
