Birding in Bangalore!
This picture was taken by birder Deepa Mohan and loaded on the email forum bngbirds where hundreds of birders log in and cite their exciting birding outings. Apparently bird watching has become the second most enjoyable hobby in the world of hobbies and seems to be growing.
I love birds and have begun to notice them through the eyes of this site. I have also begun to write about the more common ones to sensitize readers about the birds that live alongside us in our cities and their outskirts.
Today there is an excited post from Naveen Swamy who spotted 26 pelicans flying in formation towards the Hebbal lake. Swamy and friends were playing frisbee on the Police Grounds on MG Road. "it surely made our day :)" he said.
Take a look at the pics. You can see the birders are of all ages and truly enjoy their Sunday morning outings on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Sunday of every month.
