Nandi Hills or Nandidurg is an ancient hill fortress of southern India, in the Chikkaballapur district of Karnataka state. It is located just 10 km from Chickballapur town and approximately 60 km from the city of Bangalore.

Excellent place for birding and the nearest place to Bangalore if you want to see some different kind of birds. This place is famous for its thrush, flycatcher, raptors and many more.  Enjoy some of the pictures. I have constraint of my 2 GB card, so not able to take more pictures 😦
