The Sloth Bears, of course, are the stars of the Daroji Bear Sanctuary….
There were five bears, altogether, but it was nice to watch this mother and child (remember that's my favourite thing to watch!)
Here is what I call the Rock Theatre at the Daroji viewing point; you can see the bears, the mongoose, the spurfowl, the doves, the francolins....
And in this video, you can see the typical habitat of the area...and the peacock, too:
At least two mongooses (mongeese?) wandered in and out of the rock "stage":
the next day, at one of the temples, I found this turtle in the well:
At several places, we also saw these langurs:
Of course, some of the most interesting mammals were the ones I went with....here are three of them, intent on photographing the Yellow-throated Bulbul:
You can see what dedicated birders we are :)
I’m afraid I’ve been a bit of a turtle, myself, about making this post…
