Soulful birds of Saul Kere


Another Sunday, and I set out to explore yet another beautiful lake in Bangalore. Saul Kere lake is home to some interesting birds, plants and critters. Here's a photo tour...



The weather was overcast and the trail around the lake was scenic...


A Rose-ringed Parakeet was happily munching something...


It looked wicked with its half open eye... 


Its open eye was full of life though...


A small flock of Scaly-breasted Munias were chirping, "kitty kitty kitty"...
















Booted Warbler...


Booted Warbler...


Common Mormon butterfly...


 A juvenile Scaly-breasted Munia...


Juvenile Scaly-breasted Munia in flight...


The sun was up but the morning was still misty and pleasant...


This one was busy preening...



A White-cheeked Barbet seemed to have caught a dragonfly...



White-cheeked Barbets usually feed on fruits but they will take winged insects opportunistically...












Plain Tiger butterfly...


The scaly-breasted Munia feeds mainly on seeds but also eats small berries such as those of Lantana...

  7. The "evil" Rose Ringed Parakeet made me laugh. The feathers are so smooth - incredible. I feel sorry for the Scaly-breasted Munia - they couldn't come up with a better name for those intricate feathers? Thanks for sharing these astounding pictures.

  12. I'm sure I've never heard of "Scaly-breasted Munias" but they sure are beautiful birds. They give the colour brown a whole new meaning! Thank you so much!
