Hoskote birds


Birding trip to Hoskote lake produced some interesting sightings. Here are the pics...

The sunrise...


I saw a large number of black-winged stilts in the lake...


Here's a closeup of a black-winged stilt with a water droplet on its bill...


And a pair...


Then I saw a few Red avadavats in non-breeding plumage...


In this non-breeding avatar, the male Red avadavat is duller but has the red-rump...


And the female Red-avadavat is duller with less white spotting on the feather...


A Purple heron was seen perched on top of a tall tree...


An Ashy prinia...


 Pied Bushchat male...




 Pied Bushchat female...
















Large Gray Babbler...


The Large Gray Babbler couple were celebrating the week of love...


Paddy-field pipit...


Jerdon's Bushlark...

  5. You made it first this week, yay! On what unearthly hour was this? (The linky in California opens at midnight - don't know how many hours later that would be where you live). Anyways, congrats:)
    It is something special to be able to photograph one bird as clear, but a pair takes the cake! Beautiful. The black/white stilts are such elegant and pretty birds.Love the bushlark - so clear! Many thanks for taking this trip for All Seasons, Shiju! Have a marvelous week.
