Dodda Kere_Anekal : Water Birds world.

Another month,  again third sunday but new location . Exploring the birding opputunity around the Banerghatta – Anekal range with “bngbirds – Bird Watchers’ Field Club of Bangalore “.

 Not able to be there on time and missed many early morning birds. By the time i reached the lake all birders are started exploring the half dried tank. Its a very big lake but without much water and careless of people water has polluted and surronding are a garbage dump. 

As we walk inside the lake started observing many birds and deeper into the lake more and more birds.  We came out of the lake and started walking on the tank bund along the busy road observing the wings creature. On the other side of the lake little agricultural land still exists with a farm house. On a coconut tree observed the Myna and Parakeet nests on the same tree. Parakeet found chasing away the myna when it came near the nest. Probably parakeet has been nested and surveillance was strictly enforced by parakeet .
