Saul kere - a treasure trove of birds

With a good variety of native birds and the arrival of winter migratory birds, Saul kere lake in Bangalore has turned into a treasure trove of interesting birds. Here are some beautiful gems from my recent visit...

Common greenshank is a subarctic bird, breeding from northern Scotland eastwards across northern Europe and Asia. It is currently wintering in this lake in Bangalore...



Black-naped oriole can be called the crown jewel of this treasure trove. This is a winter visitor from eastern Asia...







Black-winged stilt...


Intermediate Egret...





Red-whiskered bulbul...








Green bee-eater...








Jungle myna...


Little ringed-plover is a winter visitor from Eurasia and northwestern Africa...


Red-vented bulbul...


Ashy prinia...





White-cheeked barbet...








Spotted dove...



 White-throated kingfisher...

  5. Love the yellow one, but all are so fun to watch. We hardly have any rare ones around us because not much woodlands close by. Thanks for sharing these beautiful ones of nature.

  6. Wow what beautiful birds and what great photos. Love the Green shank and the reflection, and I know bulbuls well having lived in Africa for many years but nothing as lovely at the Red-whiskered bulbul. Not a bird here that I would not love to see, beautiful, thanks so much for sharing. Hope you have a good remainder to the week Diane
