Cattle Egrets ring around the largest bovid in the world - the Gaur!
This is, perhaps, a more appropriate evolutionary association for the birds than domestic cattle! :)

International Dawn Chorus Day 2018
I shall be commentating live on International Dawn Chorus Day this Sunday morning on All India Radio (AIR) with fellow birder Sudipto Roy. I know BBC Radio and RTE Radio Ireland will carry parts of the live feed from India.
The dawn chorus of birds calling from Chapramari Wildlife Sanctuary in North Bengal, India will be broadcast from India and 13 other countries across Europe.
This programme can be heard from 4:30 am to 7 am and 9.30 am to 10.30 am on 6 May 2018 on the Rajdhani channel (666kHz) and FM Rainbow channels of AIR.
International Dawn Chorus Day is marked worldwide on the first Sunday of May every year to appreciate the symphony of nature.
In this programme, one will get to listen to bird song from twenty different locations, spanning six time zones as the broadcast would traverse every latitude and longitude from India to Iceland.

Do join in! :)
