Ranganathittu_Revisited

Ranganathittu is  a birders and photographers paradise, and is a pleasure to keep visiting again and again. The park is full of bird in the seasom from December to March. You will find birds zipping around, Birds nesting, their full throated cry, fetching nesting material, food for their young ones ... my nest, sorry next post will bring in the story of parenting, which is just as important for birds too.

I was in Ranganathittu last year, but I didnt spot the mud swallows there.
But then again, I was engrossed in watching the huge crocodiles - and there were a LOT of them

Thanks Pradosh, in fact I was looking for crocodiles, none turned up this time.
