I have to admit I was not always a bird watcher. But when I acquired my first zoom lens I suddenly started noticing birds. And then it grew on me.
So when I was at Malaysia in May, the KL Bird Park was on my agenda. But even till last day I had not managed to go there. I thought I would go and hang around Petronas Twin Towers to get some pictures. But in the end I tired out of that pretty quickly and I took a taxi to the KL Bird Park.
I have watched a lot of birds in nature so this was a different experience but being so close to them did give me photo and video opportunities. Like this gorgeous Scarlet Ibis, I got to see it for ages, it was oblivious to my present, looking for food in that pond. I will post more pictures from the bird park soon.
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!
