After more than four months from the trip to Hampi, here comes a post on it along with some pictures. Apologies to those who we kept waiting for this long....
The 3 day trip in the end of December was an amazing one, with a pretty decent list of birds, for us beginners. What was satisfying was that this time I religiously maintained notes during all the three days while birding. As always, we spent more time with the nature than with the monuments and ruins :) There were birds almost everywhere - in and around the ruins, on the road sides, Kamalapur, the JLR property (we didn’t stay there but visited there and went on the nature walk with them), the road next to the canal, leading to Daroji....
So were these tiny Ashy Crowned Sparrow Larks
This Green Bee Eater gave a pretty close access for a long time
This Little Cormorant also stayed still for a long time
Rufous Backed Shrike
A Common Kingfisher (has not been so common at least to us!)
This Pallid Harrier (Juvenile)? gave us a short glimpse before it flew off
Blue Rock Thrush ?
Here's the complete list of birds we managed to note:
