Thattekere, a small village, after Ragihalli is another spot for bird watching. Our idea was to celebrate one of our friends’ Birthday and cover the stretch of Ragihalli up to Thattekere. In most of our visits to ¬†Ragihalli, we used to go till the village and come back. But this time, we went ahead and crossed a small water pool(yes, this is how the road is meant to be… else you need to take a longer route) and reached ¬†Thattekere. While crossing Ragihalli, we spotted lots of birds. A common tailorbird which comes into the Prinia family and pair of spotted Owlets.

Advantage of so many visits of Ragihalli is that we have come to know the Kingfisher spot. Don’t know how much true, but Kingfishers can be spotted at the same location. At least in Ragihalli, we have hit ratio of 1:1. A lovely female Parakeet, we spotted.

Crossing the stretch of Ragihalli, first time we spotted a Brahminy Starling, a small and a beautiful bird. Bushlark was also screaming loudly in the morning.
