Common Stonechats
Cormorants and Egrets


Crested Lark
Green Bee-Eater


Himalayan Bulbul
Indian Roller


Peacock
Purple Sunbird (female and male)


Red-collared dove

Your bird pictures are terrific, specially the Great Hornbill, Green Bee-eater and Tawny Fish Owl which is a rare owl. I like your spirit of travelling when ever you get a chance. You are constantly enriching us with your postings ! TFS !

Corbett because of its vast and varied habitat with plenty of water and food makes it a paradise for birdwaters. However a lot of tourists miss the birds while driving away in search of the tiger.

@Singhalok, Thanks, yes, the so am I. Loved the Owl!

@AmitAag, thanks so much!

@Indiawilds, I agree, tiger sighting does take precedence, the variety of birds in the Dhilaka zone is certainly not to be missed...
