Its more than a month now, and I must say it took a while for me to like my new place. Apart from good neighbors, and a green tranquil locality, prime reason why this home will be cherished is for the fact its a habitat for numerous birds that relentlessly chirp until dusk. And it suddenly struck me that bird photography has become my new found hobby 🙂
One of the downside of hailing from a city is that you hardly know many birds.. Sparrows (thought there’s a major decline of visibility), crows (well, not very photogenic), cranes, pigeons and doves,.. are among a few familiar ones.. If you want more than these, you can pay a visit to the bird sanctuary.
I was elated to have good view of a Brahminy Starling for the very first time . The birdie also was kind enough to give me ample time for an instant photo-shoot.. I wouldn’t have known the name of the bird had it not been for this Facebook page, Birds in my Backyard. ;)
