Birds of Kodaikanal (Kodai)

Its been a while since I posted... and perfect timing to take advantage of the long weekend and update the blog.

We had gone on a family vacation to Kodai in March. Overall good weather and opportunity to do a little birding around Kodai.

The best part of Kodai wildlife is the Berijam lake. I remember access to the lake being free for all in 2005 when I last visited Kodai. However now it is protected area with access only to folks who obtain passes from the forest department and we had unfortunately not planned for it.

It was good to see the Nilgiri Flycatcher, Nilgiri Thrush ( not a good shot), Bar winged Flycatcher shrike  and Nilgiri Langur ( again a bad shot). There were the common water birds like Heron, Grebe, White Browed Wagtail at the lake.
