Finally, bird pictures from my Bikaner, Tal Chhapar S, Mahananda WLS., Sunderbans NP and Manas NP. Mostly record hots of Hill birds. Bengal Florican and Sociable Lapwing are the starts of the trip.

Bird pictures from my Bikaner and Tal Chhapar trip. Best sighting of Sociable Lapwing which is critically endangered wader species. Also Yellow eyed Pigeon which is listed under 'vulnerable' tag. I was awestruck by the size of Cinereous Vulture! It was sitting and i mistook it for a black dog!! Oh it was a great trip!

Go birding! Enjoy! Click to see the entire album.
