Pushkar Birds

Pushkar, Rajasthan.

I arrived in Pushkar and in the afternoon headed towards the hills behind town. I did not quite get there because I found a bush track along a canal, so I followed that.

There were not that many birds around but the photos came out all right so I will share them with you.

Pied Cuckoo

Note the bands on the tail.

Laughing Doves
Laughing Dove (Streptopelia senegalense)

Ha! I remembered the scientific name. I have been seeing so many of them lately.

Black-rumped Flameback
Black-rumped Flameback (Dinopium benghalense)

I am going a bit wider with some of my shots lately to get in some of the environment.

Large Grey Babbler
Large Grey Babbler (Turdoides malcomi)

I noticed that the call of the Large Gry Babbler is a lot raspier than the Jungle Babbler.
