Ducks day out :)

These pictures were captured when a family of ducks were wading past… and ….fast during my recent visit to the hill station Sirumalai. I made a collage of the same. Shall post about my visit soon.


Ducks day out


I am having a very tight work schedule and it is a long time since I posted here. So keeping my interest and blog  alive, posting a quick one on birds. Take care dear friends.

Here are two turkeys which came near me, to pose for picture as I was clicking pictures of a temple.




During my recent visit to my sister’s house, one thing I enjoyed most was feeding the pigeons. These pigeons appear either in the morning or evening and my sister’s sharp ears catch the sound when they land on the parapet wall . Immediately feeding these birds starts, if there’s is a delay they fly off as if they have lot of appointments.

Human avarice has done a lot of damage to the environment and ¬†birds which were very common and domestic like sparrows and pigeons are a rare sight to see. My uncle’s house still has a pigeon house , i.e a tower with lot of pigeon holes. Next visit I would get the pictures of the same.

I could get some pictures while the pigeons were on a visit . Usually hundreds visit but I could get only a few in my camera. There was a white beauty too, protected by many and it appeared as if she was on a diet as she could be seen only being with the group and not touching grains. My nephew has named her “Aishwarya Rai” and I am sure none of you would have any difficulty in spotting her.
