Madivala Lake....short but sweet

Adarsh and Nisarg took me along to Madivala Lake this morning, and though we didn't have a great variety of birds, the SPOT-BILLED PELICANS, the ASHY PRINIAS, the TAILOR-BIRDS, a magnificient BRAHMINY KITE, CORMORANTS, CATTLE EGRETS, POND HERONS, PURPLE MOORHENS, GREY HERONS (apart from the usual crew of KMC...KITE/MYNAH/CROW) made for a very interesting time indeed.


Here's the scene that greeted us as we entered the gate:

You can see the pelicans serenely floating around...the water-hyacinth that has choked up the lake may actually be keeping the boaters from approaching the birds too closely....

And the keen eye of the raptor...er...en"raptored" me!

A lovely morning...thank you, Adarsh and Nisarg!
