Feb 2nd Sunday LAL BAGH Birding

The second Sunday bird watch at Lalbagh on 13thFeb is a new experience. Of course every visit is something new.  New topics, Information, friend’s lot more.  I usually join 3rd Sunday but for the first time joined 2nd Sunday bird watch with our Bng Birders.

It was very interesting and a positive mood that little children’s were so much actively involved to know and understand about the birds.  And with MBK bird watch becomes open school. He makes everyone think and explains in the way that every one understands. This time he had put question to Photographers also!   Observation on birds sitting. Are big bird sits on big tree and Small birds on branches only??  and  which birds walk and hops ?? (Correct me if I am wrong) . It may look simple but everyone has to think deep, how much we observe Birds, Animals behaviors, changes, there calls, pattern of nests and which trees, flower they often visit or reside. There is no end if we go deep in observing. We saw them and keep on clicking, especially for me MBK question made me to think in different angle and I will practice it.

Lalbagh is the heaven for birds and university for bird watchers.  It was a good count of people and children’s came for bird watch.  Here are my few clicks from bird watch.
