This week's avian beauties

It was more than the usual haul from a birding trip to Hoskote. There were many posers, some ruffled feathers, a foodie and some romance. Here are the pics...
I was just in time to witness the beautiful sunrise...
The egrets, stilts and Spot-billed Pelicans were already active in their quest for food...
The rose patch had beautiful yellow roses...
The birds were slowly waking up to life. The walk was made pleasant by the beautiful views and lovely bird calls... 
A Red-whiskered Bulbul perched on one of the trees...
A parakeet was active on a tree branch. It had a larger bill than a Rose-ringed parakeet. I guessed it to be a female Alexandrine Parakeet...
An Asian Koel was seen next. From the plumes, I guess it to be a female or an immature male...
Crossandra infundibuliformis, the firecracker flower...
The hike continued...
In the bamboo thickets, I saw a Green Bee-eater with ruffled feathers...


A male Indian Robin posed with his prized catch...
And a female Indian Robin was still hunting for her meal...
A Yellow-billed Babbler couple were indulging in public display of affection...


I watched a male Purple-rumped Sunbird doing acrobatics...



White-throated Kingfisher...
A Wire-tailed Swallow decided to pose for me and like a paparazzi I tried to capture from every angle...








I returned home extremely satisfied by the morning. Hope you liked the post. Please give your feedback in the comments section below.

  7. Lovely set of photos my friend. The bee Eater is my favourite today. But I had to smile for the poor swallow with only half of its tail left it will have to grow a new set of wires.

  14. Such beautiful photos! We also have many parakeets here. They are an invasive species that spread in Israel after escaping their safari cages and have since become a common sight in the country.
