Hello! As I am back in India for the next few weeks, I thought it would be fun to have a look at some of the local wildlife here. Because, it is true – there is a huge variety of wildlife in India – imagine its elephants, tigers and peacocks, for instance. But, there is also a wealth of ‘less’-exotic, but still amazing creatures living right here beside us, in the bustle of the city.
In fact, there are so many species living here among the trees, that I have only discovered the tip of the iceberg. There are many birds I hear calling – but do not know whose voices they are. There are also many birds I see flitting through the trees and flying through the skies – and I have no idea as to their identity!
So, on this visit, I am making a concerted effort to place calls and faces together. It has been tough, I admit – they are so well camouflaged against the tree canopies; but, I am making a breakthrough. In fact, I thought it would be fun to share my findings with you, and introduce you to the bird life in my vicinity.
Therefore, and without further ado, allow me to introduce you to the birds of Bangalore!
