Campus Bird Count: IIM-B, 13 and 140216

The

Campus Bird Count (CBC)

is part of the

Great Backyard Bird Count

where on any of 4 days this year (12,13,14,15 Feb 2016), bird counts could be conducted at various educational institutions. When I was invited by Vidhya Sundar and Selvarajan Rajeshwaran, to conduct the bird count at IIM-Bangalore, I accepted with alacrity, as birders have not had access to this campus for many years now.

We had an enthusiastic group from IIMB, as well, on both days:

I clicked this "group selfie" at a traffic mirror on Sunday!

Here are some birds I clicked (I concentrated more on the walk and the people!)

Let me close with my favourite close-up from IIMB, another "bird"...the Bird of Paradise!
