We got out of the train after a birdwatching trip to Dandeli, and as we were lugging our bags out, I looked up into the Eucalyptus tree in the City Station parking lot…and ….there were
in the tree! (Click on the name for the Wiki entry.)
Chestnut-tailed Starlings are local migrants and I usually enjoy seeing them feasting on the Silk-cotton flowers on that gigantic tree in Lalbagh.
But who expected to see them at City Station? Not me!
I promptly pulled out my MLC (Mary’s Lamb Camera…my Canon SX10) and took two quick shots. Now that is a very satisfactory conclusion to a birding trip!
The winter migrant birds are arriving in force in Bangalore, and birdwatching is getting more and more interesting and varied!
