Water Birds

Even though (because of the hot summer weather), the water levels of natural reservoirs, canals and lakes are daily receding, there is still sufficient water to provide home and good feeding to flocks of visiting water birds.

Such birds as the pond heron (paddy bird), cattle egret, golden oriole, blue jay, kingfisher, white egret, cormorant, and pin tail duck have been observed in great numbers

Thanks for widening our horizons and giving us such a vibrant picture of life around Arunachala! I can almost see the flocks of water birds enjoying a dip.
