Birds at Nandi Betta

I was at Nandi Hills last morning to enjoy the pleasantly cold winter weather up there. I was there early in the morning – a time I would still be in bed if it was a week day. It was windy and foggy on the top, and the hill was covered by clouds all around it. When the sun was high and the clouds started dissolving, birds came out for their daily grind in search for food. I was lucky to spot a few pretty birds, and among them were a Paradise Flycatcher, Blue capped Rock Thrush and a Tickell’s Blue Flycatcher. I spent nearly an hour photographing them. Here are the pictures.

    WOnderful! It makes a soul happy to see these chirping little things. Many times we hear birds but we pay scant attention to them. Great pictures.

    Very Nice photos..
    I need a help, could anybody let me know a good photographer in Bangalore, who is available to shoot the best moments in an event. If he can provide video recording also, then it will be of great help. Please do suggest.
