Painted Stork



Camera Critters


This mother bird spread her wings to protect her chicks from direct sunlight.


Every November-December various migratory birds in the trees near the water bodies around Bangalore. Last Sunday we went bird watching in one such village. You can read more about the visit and see more pictures at Painted Storks at Kaggaladu.

Wow! Wow! Wow! This is SO cool! I just love seeing critters I wouldn't normally get to see. My Husband wants to travel to see the world - I want to travel to see the critters hehehe. I guess I'm obsessed.

This is an awesome photo! I love it and I'm SO glad you shared this!

What a wonderful capture this is! It’s definitely not something I’m likely to see here at the beach in Southern California so thanks for sharing. I’m introducing Molly at Small Reflections today.
Hugs and blessings,

That's very cool! It's fun to see animals that I haven't seen before.

Thank you for sharing that bird. She seems to have harsh words for you from her expression. The tree looks familiar from my month in India some years ago. I think we has some of that variety in the compund where I was staying.

What a spectacular post! I have never heard of behavior like that and of course it makes perfect sense. What a gorgeous bird. Thank you.
