Endemic bird day birdwatching – An ex-science communicators reunion

Yes, last weekend was endemic bird day & a reunion of ex-science communicators was arranged at sultanpur bird sanctuary, Haryana.


We spotted many endemic as well as migratory species, such as – Sarus crane (mom, dad & baby) Peacock, peahen, coucal pheasant, green bee-eater, green-tailed sunbird (female), common hoopoeblack drongo, spot-billed duck, knob-billed duck, Eurasian spoonbill duck, purple heron, painted stork, greater egret, cattle egret, silt, ibisbill, red-napped ibis, paddyfield (oriental) pipit, white-throated kingfisher, red-vented bulbul, red-wattled lapwing, night heron, black- rumped flameback, Eurasian collared dove and butterflies.

Further, a nilgai was spotted with black drongo sharing a symbiotic relation.

We were all lucky to have a good pair of binoculars to enable us see and identify birds.

Owing to hosting file size limitation, I invite you to check the above birds photographed here

Thank you for your time.

Keep riding!

The original purpose of this blog was promoting city cycling and popularizing urban green belt corridors, which it did for it's first one and a half year, since the year of it's launch - 2014. Now-a-days, that is, since the last two years, I haven't been city commuting on my bike, thanks to my city earning the world's most air polluted region title. And thanks to the redesigning of City roads, those are forked under construction since last six months, loosing a green cover of a whooping 9,100+ trees and the rising construction dust hazards. And lastly thanks to El nino of 2015 and El nina of 2016. I don't know if I have missed any other reason. The theme of the blog, hence, changed, into a bit of my own ramblings covering topics, such as - my travel blogging, Social issues in India, Climate change & biodiversity conservation.
