What I shot over the weekend :)

Streaked Throated Woodpecker – pecking for food in the rain.


Bar Tailed Tree Creeper: It crawled on the tree trunk like a lizard, almost invisible, and then disappeared here.

Black Hooded Oriole I think... wish the shot was not so blurry. Don’t miss the rain drops!

  1. Lov ely shots all of them. I loved your captions. For some reason i very much liked the caption that says Dont miss the rain drops. My fav shots are the last butone and the close up of the Russet. It looks so chubby all fluffed up.
    Btw, whatare we looking at in the last pic,the one that brat3 captured?


  2. Awesome shots, IHM. You are one dedicated bird photographer. The cold deterred me from venturing out as much as you. And I enjoyed how the little ‘bird-spotter’ did her job with diligence!


  3. Amazing IHM… Have you you read Birds of Kerala by Induchoodan (not sure if Eng translation is available)… If you have plan to visit wayanad, you’ll fall in love with the place with chirps & chirrups loud enough to turn one deaf
    Since my hometown z near Wayanad, birding ws an obvious hobby. Miss those days 😦


  4. I am not able to decide whether it is amazing “you” or amazing “birds”!
    Superb captures by you! Glad got to see these through your eyes. 🙂


  5. Loved these. I was waiting for the bird pictures 🙂
    That is not a black hooded Oriole, looks like minivet…female of scarlet minivet?
    And that is a slug, we have them in our garden too.
