Birds in the air near and far

February 23, 2015

Though an aero-show concluded last week in Bangalore, I’d like to share other air shows I attended!

This was near Kollegal, on 220215.

These are

Spot-billed Pelicans

which are local travellers. Now, the long-distance…

These are

Bar-headed Geese

landing at Hadinaru kere, near Nanjangud, Karnataka, on 080215; they come all the way from Mongolia!

These are two of the several birds whose arrival we look forward to, eagerly, every winter, to our us the message that all is well with bird migration around the globe.
