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.
I got my Canon 75-300 quite sometime back but somehow didn’t try it properly till today. Either I have learned to focus better or the Canon lens is better than Sigma. I think it is a bit of both. Also the weather is much less cold in Delhi/Gurgaon these days so squirrels are out in numbers and I was out too!
Next came this Laughing Dove and it posed for me for quite sometime. In fact after I had taken all the shots that I wanted it was still there not moving an inch for the sunny spot.
Then Chhavi threw some bread crumbs in the porch and pat came the Jungle Babblers and started eating them. It has been ages since I went on my bird round but I think I will go today and see what I get in the neighborhood. I usually get more birds neighborhood than I get in the backyard.
