Winter Birdwatch – Pictures from Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary

Last weekend, I was at Sultanpur bird sanctuary.

Holding true to its glory, it didn’t disappoint me. I spotted many flocks of birds, especially migratory birds who have settled in as refugees for the on-going spell of harsh winter in their lands.

I spotted Eurasian coots, Northern shoveler, Purple heron, Grey heron, Spot-billed duck, blue capped rock thrush, Cape turtle dove, Night herons, Painted Storks, Little drongo, Squirrels, Jungel babblers, Mynas, Red-vented bubul, Rose-ringed parakeets and crows.

I couldn’t spot the many others..

Following are the pictures –

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.

  1. You most definitely do NOT live anywhere near Iowa with those birds! Very cool. I’ve discovered in my American travels that every region has its own beauty, though, including its critters.
