Don’t go by the color of the water, this is a ditch in the neighborhood where lapwings are a regular feature. I have observed that these birds lay their eggs on the ground and if by mistake if you start walking that way, they scream and scream.
Looks like this egret got a bit dirty after taking a dip in the ditch water.
I get to see a lot of Mynas. Like this pictures because it felt like they were sitting on a swing.
And here was an Eurasian Collared Dove peacefully going about its business.
And finally even though this is not a bird I see them so often. And I know it is eating rice because someone had left cooked rice for the birds and squirrels on this wall.
Hopefully while you read this I would be taking a short break at Uttarakhand. Should be back tomorrow. Hopefully with loads of new photos.
This Myna had everything going for it, it had a funky hairstyle, a great eye makeup but had no sense of lighting. Look where it decided to pose! Went to the shades, so there are shadows in the picture. However much I pleaded, it did not yield. I still like Dhaba birds as my models, they are somewhat used to human beings.
