Some of the birds on the NTP 2010 Meet at K.Gudi, B R Hills

I think we were all totally agreed that the NTP meet at the

K.Gudi resort

of

Jungle Lodges and Resorts


was really excellent in terms of bird sighting.In fact, we just did not have to go beyond the Gol Ghar to see a variety of birds!

However, our safaris yielded a good number of birds too....

Most striking was this fantastic owl, that I have never see before, just look at the mesmerizing eyes of the

SPOT-BELLIED EAGLE OWL

Nothing like a Paradise Flycatcher's eye appeal to finish off the birdwatching at K.Gudi!

Some Mammals...and Others.... on the NTP2010 Meet, K.Gudi camp, BR Hills

Well, this post is NOT going to be about that mythical animal, the SIT (South Indian Tiger)....but as far as the other mammals went, the NTP meet had nothing to complain of....

Firstly, the

WILD BOAR

I don't know why they are called "wild" around the K.Gudi camp...there's an excellent symbiotic relationship between the two, and they are not afraid of humans at all!

The

MALABAR GIANT SQUIRRELS

were also sighted several times:
