Plumbeous Water Redstart

I clicked this picture while walking around in Palampur. I was walking from my hotel to the bus stand at Palampur. This Plumbeous Water Redstart was a very obliging bird.

When I saw it I had the kit lens on the camera. The bird was so patient that I could change my lens and then click pictures. First this was sitting on an electric wire and I got some record keeping shots. But then it changed its position and went to sit on a small hoarding. That is when I got lucky. But this is the only decent bird shot I have from the entire trip.

  1. Thank you Shalu, Meenakshi, Prashanth, Anu, Rama, Aparna, Vishal, Niranjan and N for the encouragaing birds. I need to click more birds and post them here!

  2. Hi Mridula,

    Awesome shot Mridula.

    Wow, you really got some time. The bird is used to modelling for photos, I guess. That’s the special thing about big tourist places, even the wildlife over there knows that this is a tourist place and that they’ll be clicked. I encountered such type of birds during my visit to Golden Gate Bridge.

    Regards

Travel Tales from India

I am Mridula Dwivedi and I started blogging on 'Travel Tales from India' in June 2005. Within a few months of the launch my travel blog found a mention on both the BBC and The Guardian. I also featured in a National Geographic Skoda Yeti Video.

I quit my job as a professor in May 2015. I am having a blast ever since. I do not miss my work but sometime I do miss my salary! Somewhere along the journey I ended up acquiring a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur! I now wonder why?
