Jhansi: Birding in area around Paaricha


It is monsoon season and the small wooded areas around Paariksha (close to Jhansi) are hosting lot of birds. The Brahminy Starling just walk graciously in front of you. The red wattled lapwing here are also not shy and will walk as close as one meter. At this time i believe cormorants and egrets are also nesting. These birds are collecting the flexible small branches for nesting and fly away to the nesting place holding the same in beaks. It was too exciting to see great egret cleaning there feathers twisting the long neck several ways. Rose ringed parakeet are flying over us in large groups of 5-10.
