Over the last two years I have been spending time off and on in the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve. It is one of the unique biospheres in India and there are a lot of endemic bird species. Here are a few to give you an idea.
I have been documenting different species and a lot more needs to be done. I hope you enjoy it.
