What is Bannerghatta zoo area – We have heard this quite a few times but had never been there. During my 5 years of stay in Bangalore, I never went to Bannerghatta zoo as well. Somehow taking snaps in a zoo looks little odd. A tiger is roaming in 10 meter of boundary and you can capture it .. naa doesn’t excite that much!!
Finally we made a plan at 10 PM night. Thanks to Deepa and her blogs, we were able to spot the place. As usual we reached early to the place before the dawn break. It was again a morning with mist.

Priyanka and Sushil moved in one direction and I took a different direction. Since it was our first visit, so no one knew where to go. Very soon, we were able to spot Kingfisher and Red Wattled Lapwing.

As we went further, we were able to spot the “White Browed Bulbul” chirping on the trees. Also we came across the Brown Shrike.
