    White Bellied Blue Flycatcher (male)

    It’s at the other end of a ten hour long drive. But Ganeshgudi never fails to delight. Be it with the never ending stream of little winged ones. Or jaw dropping majesty of the Hornbills. Featured here: The White Bellied Blue Flycatcher. The male of the species – a frequent visitor at the Old Magazine House. ©2014 Rahul Jauhari. All rights reserved.

  • Oriental Magpie Robin

    Oriental Magpie Robin

    The Goa Project “Enough of you inquisitive photographers. I’m off.” Somewhere in the middle of our Zuari River adventure, I spotted this little Oriental Magpie Robin on a branch. Nothing new, for one has seen this bird very often. I guess this shot was a result of a habit of pointing the camera at anything with wings. The little chap…

    Peacock

    The Kabini Project: This was on day two of my Kabini trip. I think we were driving back after a futile lookout for a big cat. The naturalist with us suddenly swerved the jeep and manouvred it to this spot. What we witnessed next was this peacock who blessed us city souls with a completely breathtaking dance performance, right down…

  • Great Cormorant

    Great Cormorant

    The Kabini Project : This particular tree trunk is kind of symbolic of Kabini. It rises out of the Kabini River and one can usually see a couple of Great Cormorants sitting on it. Or Egrets. Or even a Brahminy Kite. It’s also the first thing trigger happy visitors start clicking once they start on the boat cruise. A little…

I will always recommend Kabini in case you wish to enjoy an uncluttered wildlife experience. In case you plan to visit, check these two links out: Kabini River Lodge & The Bison Kabini Wildlife Resort. Both are great places to stay…

  • Brahminy Kite

    Brahminy Kite

    The Kabini Project: The Brahminy Kite is in abundance in Bengaluru and Mysore. But it was lovely for us from Maharashtra, who are so used to the usual Black Kite, to watch it. Also known as the Red-backed Sea-eagle in Australia, it is a medium-sized bird of prey in the family Accipitridae, which also includes many other diurnal raptors such as eagles, buzzards and harriers. This same bird, in Indian folklore, is…

  • Indian Roller

    Indian Roller

    The Kabini Project : This delightful bird gave me all the time I needed to admire it. And shoot it. Also known as the Blue Jay, it is easily spotted in Kabini. It didn’t seem as shy as the Rollers I had seen in Maharashtra. Indian Rollers look stunning when they dry themselves in the sun after a misty Kabini…
