Bird Watching, Almost.


The long weekend ensured a time to relax and be pampered. And what better way than to head to my father's house. Armed with my new Canon Powershot SX 260HS, I stood in the balcony as I overlooked the canopy of trees that covered the lazy lane. And then they came one by one. I was only to glad to go shutter happy. Thought you'd like to see them too. Do click on the links and you just might learn a few facts that you never knew. 


A pair of Sparrows that seem to be dwindling in the city. 



The Egret, all poise and calm.




A Parrot camouflaged in the greens.




A Purple-Rumped Sunbird, yes I Googled and how!




A Coppersmith Barbet, not very pleased and flew away instantly.




The Red Whiskered Bulbul, if you please.




The Showstopper Squirrel




And when he looked me in the eye, I clicked!

Beautiful pics,

I wonder where have these sparrows vanished ??

Lucky you to be able to see a couple of them. I haven't seen them for years, I only faintly remember them coming in our home frequently during the school days
