Chintamani Kar Bird Sanctuary

I am sharing a few snaps taken by my cousin, Soma, who is an avid bird watcher.

All three birds from Chintamani Kar Bird Sanctuary, Narendrapur, Kolkata, India. This little garden is an amazing place for all kinds of birds all through the year.It often keeps throwing up
surprises like the rare Grey-bellied Cuckoo that was spotted there recently, first time corroborated by photographs.
