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!
