    The Munnar Project At the entry gate to the Chinnar wildlife sanctuary, this gentleman and his kin wait. They will unzip suitcases and bags with remarkable ease and lessen your load, assuming you have kept your luggage on the overhead car carrier. BTW, do keep the windows rolled up. They might just wish to make a call from your mobile…

    Urban birding can also be a pleasure. Though the rewards are fewer. I was standing on my terrace when I saw this Black Kite flying straight at me.

Quite an experience as one got to observe the behaviour of these fabulous birds from close quarters. Shooting from a bobbing, unsteady boat was tough, but a learning experience 🙂 ©2012 Rahul Jauhari.

    White Bellied Drongo

    Tungareshwar: So this Sunday we visited Tungareshwar, near Vasai. It was a long, long trek uphill with very few sightings along the way. Near the top of the climb, I sat down for a while. In a bit these White Bellied Drongos appeared and began doing aerial acrobatics. Made for a nice frame. Spotted a few Yellow Footed Green Pigeons and…
