Default Birds

Cougal - crow like bird, with red eyes and a little brown in the wings. This was a little shy, hiding from my line of sight.



Pond heron, patiently waiting for a catch:


Don't know what this bird is, but was constantly flying over my head - probably had a nest around:


A young drongo majestically perched on barded wire:


C&C welcome!

Raghu Excellent shots. Black birds are very difficult to bring out detail on but you did a very good job. The BIF shot turned out quite well. (Never had much luck myself).

#1 is my top pick. The bird surrounded by that foliage with the center point being that red eye is nice.

Raghu,

as usual again excellent shots from you.
It is really hard to decide which is my favorite.
I wish to reach your perfection one day.

Cheers,

Stefan
