The belief that baby birds that are touched by human hands will be rejected by their parents is a myth.

Some of us don’t care.

Where would ghosts go, if we cut all trees?

Delightful pictures of green pigeon activity from my balcony.

Can you identify this bird?

  1. Such a small bird roufous eating snake picture is amazing! Its tummy is so small! Where will the snake fit in?!

    Nice collection of the eating birds! Sunbirds are the most beautiful birds!


  2. That is some stunning photography!
    May I ask what kind of camera you use?
    My youngest son & I recently went on a British sponsored ‘birding’ tour of the Chitwan region of southern Nepal. We really learned a lot.
    Did you know that at any given time of year 10% of the world’s birds live in the Himalayas?
    Not just the birds native to the Himalayan regions but also birds migrating from as far as Siberia & western europe.


  3. Beautiful.First pic is the bestestest.Is that a dragonfly its eating? I can see even the details on its wings.
    Sarus Crane is lovely and so graceful.


  4. Great pics! I’m coveting your lenses 😀 It’s always make me smile to see the ducks duck into the water that way, with their legs flailing about outside the water.. There’s a lake just outside my workplace, with ducks,cormorants,storks/cranes/both (I can never tell the diff), and one majestic pelican. I’ve taken a great many pics of the pelican on my camera phone, but I will lug my 50-300 out to get a better pic of him. Thanks for the inspiration!


  5. This makes me want to go bird watching–but it’s winter and the only birds that want to fly are seagulls. 😛 Maybe in a couple months.


  6. Lovely shots, IHM. Lucky you! 🙂
    Some corrections: That’s not a Tailor Bird. And the Bee-eater is the Green Bee-Eater. The last one is the Purple-rumped Sunbird.
