As per the locals, there was a good monsoon and good crops this season and so are the birds. Khuri has 3 small lakes, if I may call so! Lakes are abuzz with birds during morning and evenings.
Here is Sparrow’s family.
House Sparrow Baby (imm)
House Sparrow Female
House Sparrow Male
This one is the fav shot, this is bit of a shy bird:-) The only issue I found in birding in deserts was that, you have limited choices for camouflaging yourselves in desert.
Red Wattled Lapwing, We found these were more tolerant to humans around them than the ones we have spotted around here in Bangalore.
Red Vented Bulbul
Blue Rock Pigeon
Black Winged Stilt
Green Bee Eater
Long legged Buzzard, Sum shot this while having Camel ride :-) Even though we spotted look alikes of buzzards and kites, but we were unable to capture or identify them.
Bristled Grass Warbler
Great Grey Shrike
Locals call it "Shagun Chidi". As the belief goes this bird brings good omens. Typically when the camel/cow or goats are lost in the desert and locals begin their search get them back, they follow the the direction in which "Shangun chidi" is found.
Colony of Sparrows, It's just amanzing to sit and watch them flying , grouping and regrouping in tandem creating beautiful patterns in the sky.
White eared bulbul, even though we spot so many bulbuls around home here, this trip could spot at least 3 different varietes of bulbuls and capture them.
Footsteps of the bird on the sand, It's just great to watch it.
Red Collared Dove
White Throated Kingfisher, You really cannot miss this one any where! Can you?
