Photowalk at Hosakere

Sunday morning photowalk at Hosakere, Bangalore was most awesome. This was our first visit and we were overjoyed to find so many interesting sightings. Here's a photo tour...



Sunrise...


Laughing dove

This small long-tailed dove also known as Little Brown Dove is found in dry scrub and semi-desert habitats where pairs can often be seen feeding on the ground...


The laughing dove gets its name from its particularly characteristic call, which sounds like human laughter, a low rolling croo-doo-doo-doo-doo with a rising and falling amplitude...


The Sun was making it a beautiful morning...



Cattle Egret...


A farmer started his toil...


Cattle egrets were seen foraging...


Birds started visiting the trees...


Green Bee-eater...








The trail seemed endless...


A Rose-ringed Parakeet was seen holding a bean...





Millet farm...


A Red-wattled Lapwing flew in...







I liked its bespectacled look...


I clicked as it flew away...


The trees and the marigold cultivation were looking so beautiful...


It's the end of season for marigold, but they still look pretty...


A Plain Prinia was busy as usual making it very difficult to photograph...


My patience paid...


Common Myna...


Shikra...


Our small group of bird watchers...





Cattle Egret...


Pied Bush Chat...









We walked towards the lake to see the water birds...


Not many birds were seen at the lake. The sunlight sparkle on the water gave a good bokeh oportunity...


Cattle Egret...



Had a glimpse of a Pied Kingfisher...






A Brahminy Kite made a sudden appearance...



I think it was in the mood to try some unconventional dish for breakfast...
