Liked the open beak and the hairstyle of the Brahimny Starling that I could capture but honestly I am longing for a trip and not more birds. OK if a trip is not happening then birds will have to do but I really want to get out. The trouble is I have exhausted all my leaves and the new leaves kick in only in April.
I don’t know why but the Brahminy Starling is also called Brahminy Myna. Clicked this one on Sunday, and I am so happy to think that I can do a bird round tomorrow as well, otherwise bird rounds just mean weekend for me.
Have to say thank you to Siddhartha Joshi for asking the camera EXIF information for the birds. Realized that the ISO was set too high on the previous day and I forgot to bring it down on the bright sunny Sunday.
Here is the EXIF information was this shot.
Focal Length 300mm
I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
