Colours of nature - Gulakamale


Gulakamale in Bangalore has got some beautiful scenery amid the stunning surroundings of a lake. The birds I found here were visually pleasing too. Here's a photo tour...

Sunrise was a treat in the misty morning...


A common kingfisher was the first sighting of the day. It is a misleading name for a bird which is very rarely seen...






The scenic road next to the lake...



Indian robin (male)...





Indian robin (female)...





White-throated kingfisher...


Tawny Coster butterfly...





More sightings of the Common kingfisher. Here's the male...














The female is identical in appearance to the male except that her lower mandible is orange-red...


Pied Bushchat (female)...


Pied bushchat (male)...





Another Common kingfisher flew in with a small fish... 





Blue-faced malkoha...


I spent some time at the Thottikallu falls (TK falls) which is just a mile or so away from the lake...


I sat near the flimsy stream and enjoyed the soothing sounds of the trickling water and chirping birds. Here's a video...











I hope you liked the post. Do let me know your feedback in the comments section below...

  1. I am amazed at how you capture birds so clearly. There is nothing common about the Common Kingfisher (ha ha I had to say that). They are so pretty and remind me of the book I read recently, Kingfisher Catches Fire by Rumer Godden, set in Kashmir.

  10. Beautiful birds, water, and sky! So colorful...what a wonderful walk! I do not like it when birds are called “common” anything! Especially one like that beautiful Kingfisher. We see a couple kinds of that bird and they are very hard to photograph!
