Cloudy weekends are not leaving us. But since I take photos for just fun and enjoyment, it hardly matters to me. Saturday plan got dropped, so I decided to visit Bannerghatta national park area, again an endless space for birding. Late night, Ganesh, Bhavya and Geetanjali decided to join. And later we got the company of Prashant and Vinay. It’s always my pleasure to move with this kind of intelligent person who has great knowledge of bird, place and actually everything.

Sighting started with pair of Pied Kingfisher, sitting on the edge of the tree and seeking for prey. Soon, they started diving in the water. For some initial chances they didn’t get the fish but soon they got the stuff. Geetanjali told – We should learn patience from them. Yes, we should !

After we moved towards Temple site, where we spotted the great action of Common Iora eating his prey in an enjoyable manner. We also sighted Asian Paradise Flycatcher, Fantail Flycatcher, Oriental White eye and Small Minivet. Some shots are here.
