This was our 3rd Sunday outing with bngbirds team.
One of the most exciting birding. While going to the place, Sushil has taken from some inside road. He told me that he saw black shouldered kite here many times. So, we got little conscious in driving.
While driving, we saw that beautiful moon(which was supposed to be the closest to earth). Meanwhile, some guys asked us “what happened to last night match” .. Yes, Pakistan won the match.
On a single tree, we spotted Golden Oriole, White cheeked Barbet, Coppersmith Barbet and Great tit.
Moving forward towards the lake side, we have witnessed some of the classical view where Pied Kingfisher was hovering and searching for prey. A black kite was chasing short-toed snake eagle.
O yes, again a treasure tree. We spotted Small Minivet, Cuckoo shrike, Indian Roller, Jungle Myna, Common Myna, Indian Roller and White throated Kingfisher.
O man, this is my favorite. I never knew that Juvenile Red Whiskered Bulbul don’t have red spot at head. Just awesome to watch and listen Red whiskered Juvenile bulbul.
And the paradise of all. Asian Paradise Flycatcher – Just saw her existence for a second. Sushil chasing long to the greater Coucal from its highly confusing sound. Finally we spotted her sitting on a tree. And like always jumping from one tree to another.
Now, this is the beauty we witnessed first time. Asian Brown Flycatcher. A million dollar eyes. A very small bird, flying and sitting on the same branch of a tree.
