Keylong Birding Part 2

In the afternoon at Keylong I just went for a walk along the road through the ravine. Luckily I spotted a Grey Wagtail hovering near its nest with some bugs. It tried to lead me away from the nest for a while but eventually went into a hole in a bank to feed the young one.

I am pretty sure this is a male. Later on I saw it at the local dump scavenging around for worms or bugs.

It took me ages to identify this one. Western Crowned Warbler. Thanks to the Indian Bird ID group on facebook. They are awesome.

Earlier on I spotted an adult and a juvenile Long-tailed Shrike sitting on a wire near the posh hotel where the tourists from Manali stop overnight on their way to Leh in Ladakh.
