A couple of birds.....

I started getting interested in birds only when Samhith began noticing them and asking their names. When I realised that his interest made him conscious about being quiet and calm while we were looking at birds, I decided to encourage him just to teach him some patience. You can see the influence he has had on me, just by going through my blog. But you can really gauge his influence when you see the pics below. These were taken by my sister-in-law, Sandhya, when she was on a trip to Chidambaram. Till now, she has shown no interest in birds, but thanks to him, the whole family has jumped on the birding bandwagon!  

I have no idea about the names of the birds, so if any of you do know, please leave a comment....



This is the best one - a bird inside its nest...... again, I have no clue as to the name.....


She actually took a lot more photographs, but they were not all that clear, and I could not put them up! But as of now, thanks to Samhith, there is a whole new family of birding enthusiasts!!!!

  2. Anu I am not 100% sure but that kind of nests are made by tailor birds. I unfortunately cannot identify the bird.

  4. Thats so cool, how one can infulence all others in the family. Thanks for the lovely pictures, in this fast paced world we dont even have time to look at flying pigeons, yet alone sparrows or anything.

    Try to keep some bird feed at home :)

  6. @Jayasree: Oh yes, i shall certainly try!

    @Mridula: even i wondered if they were tailor birds, but the pic is unfortunately not too clear...she took this one at dusk....

    @Chitra: Oh yes, it is a recent interest, but i find myself noticing more and more birds all around me...... till recently i too knew little...

    @Sri: you cant imagine the influence a kid has on the family.... which is why i just love being a mom!

    as to bird feed, we feed lots of birds... unfortunately, it is the crows which hog all the food... and barely allow the smaller birds near it...we get bulbuls and other birds when the crows have had their fill...

    @Hema: thanks so much..... I was so interested in Sprouts that I checked it out, and have decided to join too.... lets hope to meet sometime there...

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
