Birds of Bidar ( near Hyderabad)

Image
We took a quick vacation to Bidar a few weeks back. It is just 140 Kms from Hyderabad and Jungle lodges have opened a new resort there called Bluck Buck resort ( about 20 kms beyond Bidar)

It was amazing to see the Blackbucks roaming around in the fields where maize and corn were being cultivated. It looked very fragile as there was not much forest cover nearby and the fields are very close to human habitation. I just hope it is one of those miracles of human and animal co-existence and it remains the same way.

Now to the birds ....

The resort is next to a small lake and there were swarms of red rumped swallows that greeted us.
