Trip to Saul Kere lake

On my recent visit to Saul Kere lake, I saw some very pretty visiting and resident birds. Here are the pics...

...
Rains continue to lash, but makes the surroundings lush. Red Canna lily...
...
A resident White-throated Kingfisher was the first bird to flash its colors...
...
A visiting Spot-billed Pelican was seen flying around...
...
A flock of Scaly-breasted Munia was seen next...
...

...

...
Saw a Eurasian Coot training her chicks...
...
...

...

...

...
A Black Drongo couple were seen being attached and detached in a span of few minutes...
...
...

...
A female Black-rumped Flameback (Lesser Goldenbacked Woodpecker) was seen far away...
...
This Black-rumped Flameback is a visitor, likely from north India or Pakistan...
...
Far on a tree were perched a male Black-naped Oriole and an Indian Golden Oriole. They are winter visitors from probably northeastern China, Korea or northern Vietnam...
...

...
A raptor was seen savoring his fish meal. It may be a Brahminy Kite juvenile or a Eurasian Marsh-Harrier. Quite difficult to identify...
...

...
Last bird of the day was a female White-naped Woodpecker...
...

  7. Those two woodpeckers are very striking and colourful, really standing out on your dull day. Love the Coots - great portraits.

    If that opening picture is your lounge, I'm not sure my wife would stand for me doing a similar thing. She says I spend too much time on birds - LOL!

  15. Absolutely beautiful & thank you so much for sharing. The colors are phenomenal. I live by Fox River and I see many birds, ducks & sometimes swans. I also see many squirrels and rabbits and other critters when we go out on our walks near Fox River. It's only about 4 or 5 blocks from me. Have a great day!
