We should feel fed up with the violence and killing going on around us. If a human being is killed by an animal, it’s sad, but if a human being is killed by another human being it’s unthinkable. We have to make a special effort to think of each other as fellow human beings, as our brothers and sisters.
And the wait is over ! Median egrets at Mandagadde Bird Sanctuary, near Shimoga in western ghats region.
Every year in monsoon season median egrets and relatively rare Indian darters nest and breed here by sharing only a few trees on small islands in Tunga river. It was quite a disappointment not to find any boats around due to the monsoon season, but there was a high post on roadside that provided a nice view (with 600 mm) of how adults feed the young ones.
