Spot Billed Duck


This has been a long pending post. We had visited Thippagondanahalli (T.G. Halli) dam a few times in the months of Jan & Feb. This was the time when the Kestrel migrates to this place. It was probably the most photographed bird in Bangalore at that time :) Giving it company where the Marsh and Montagu’s Harriers, the very cute Little Ringed Plovers, Yellow & Grey Wagtails, River Terns, Egrets, Herons, Larks, Pipits and many more. Along with spending quality time sighting the birds, we also happened to sight/meet many photographers (probably more than the number of birds) with top quality equipment.

For directions, please visit Rohini’s blog. It was very helpful to us.

    Hi Deepa, Aditya, Anjali

    Thanks :)

    Our birding in and around Bangalore has reduced a bit, but we still manage to go to the forests sometimes.

    Lets all meet up, it has been a long time.

    And the last Kane Beatz banger that I noticed
    on the radio was ‘Bottoms up’ by Trey Songs featuring
    Nikki Minaj. Let your gladiator shoe be the focal point of your outfit
    and keep your accessories to a minimum. The most common place that people ground the amp is by running a
    wire to one of the bolts that holds down the front seat.
