Where have all the other birds gone?

The two black kites in our colony are presently the most visible ones around. All the bulbuls, sunbirds and robins seem to have disappeared! I wonder why that is so.

Meanwhile, the absence of birds has given me very little opportunity of using my camera, so I jumped at the chance when the kite came to sit on our terrace for a while, giving me some good pics... Here they are....

  1. The bird seems to be sitting close. I hope the smaller ones do come back too.

  2. very good shots, U seem to be very good at birds photography , u should take that seriously and do something abt it :)

  3. Wow... Lovely shot! sure hope the other birds come back :)

  4. nice shots anu ... lets blame the absence of birds on urbanization. i also dont see many birds i used to see earlier. looks like they are moving to suburbs :(

  5. Beeeeeeeautiful takes Anu. I really liked them. And the small birds will come back when these 2 will go off :) Happens at my home too, not often; they usually like to stay together!

    About your query on my post The Day, first of all, thanks so much for your kind suggestions. Actually I tried providing INR option too, but the payment gateway I'm using doesn't support INR currency for now. In future, there surely will be an option to pay in INR.

    Regarding website designing; it's one of my professions! Sounds odd, but I'm a photographer, a website designer, a writer, and some more. Good or bad I don't know, but I can do it all. Let me know your website design plan, and I'll be able to help you out :)

  6. Wow.....the eagle in all its elegance.

The Havelis of Bikaner - A Photo Post

The lanes are narrow , twisting and turning amidst buildings old and new. Crumbling old structures with intricate workmanship stand side by side with art deco buildings, and more modern constructions, which follow no particular style. Autos, bicycles, motorcycles and vans rush past, blowing their horns as loudly as possible, while cows saunter past peacefully, completely unaffected by the noise. In the midst of all this chaos, children play by the side, and women go about their chores, as we explore these by-lanes of Bikaner, and its beautiful Havelis. Facade of one of the Rampuria Havelis

Kabini Part 2 - A Boat Ride

The river Kabini is the heart of the Nagarhole National park, and a boat ride on the river is an integral part of the stay at the Kabini River Lodge. The incessant, unseasonal rainfall had marked our stay so far, and heading to the jetty for our boat ride on our second evening at the lodge, we kept our fingers crossed, hoping for clear skies.  The Jetty... at the Kabini River Lodge

Kabini Part 3 - After the Rains

Visiting Kabini in peak summer, we hadn’t bargained for the rains, which dominated our three days at the Lodge. While animal sightings were understandably lesser than usual, seeing the forest in the rain was an interesting experience in its own way. However, as we headed back into the forest for our second and third safaris, we hoped the rains would let up, and allow us to see more animals! Winding jungle paths
