My favorite is the bird in the midst of the green lawn. Nice.

Exquisite birdie photos! Thank you for sharing, Vidya! What kind of bird is the one in photo number 6? Gorgeous! Love your Sunday posts!

Beautiful photos, beautiful birds! I love how well you capture the texture of the feathers. Very cheerful as well!

Renee Weatherford December 11, 2011 at 8:24 pm

I love the 6th one down – but they are all wonderful!!!

Tara R. December 11, 2011 at 3:12 pm

We must have had the same thought this week about bird watching. You captured some beautiful feathered creatures.

Betsy at Zen-Mama December 11, 2011 at 10:02 pm

What beautiful birds! Is this a zoo? Are they all native to India?

Vidya Sury December 11, 2011 at 4:56 pm

Hi Terri – it is a night heron. Took these pictures at the Chennai Zoo. :-)It was very gorgeous – the texture of its feathers was quite breath-taking!

Thank you for letting me tag along :)) They are so beautiful.

Amazing, Tara, because your blog is the first one I usually visit even before I do my Sunday post. Today I hadn’t. 🙂 Your pictures are beautiful, as always!

Vidya Sury December 11, 2011 at 5:09 pm

@Laurie – it was so soothing to just stand and stare at them. They just sat around as though they had not a care in the world. They probably didn’t 😀

Keetha Broyles December 11, 2011 at 8:15 pm

Lovely birds. I wish I knew the names of all of them.

Unknown Mami December 12, 2011 at 3:48 am

Such lovely birds. My favorite picture is the first one.

Vidya Sury December 12, 2011 at 3:50 am

🙂 Unknown Mami – that’s one of my favorites too. I love the contrast.

Vidya Sury December 12, 2011 at 3:57 am

Thank you, Rachel. 😉 And thank my camera.

Vidya Sury December 12, 2011 at 4:00 am

Betsy, yes – these pictures are from the Chennai(Madras) zoo. Most of them are native to India, Vidur would know better. It was such a pleasure to visit.

Vidya Sury December 12, 2011 at 4:02 am

Hi Kim – My pleasure! Yes, we have cardinals here – such pretty colorful little birds! We have several bird sanctuaries in India. I’ve only visited one, though.

Vidya Sury December 12, 2011 at 4:08 am

Thanks, Renee, that heron was quite fascinating! It sat still for so long! I think I could have gotten a picture of its eyeball if I wished. 🙂

Vidya Sury December 12, 2011 at 4:10 am

Hi Keetha! They’re mostly herons and ducks. And one cassowary. But specifically, my son knows the names of all these birds.

qandlequeen December 12, 2011 at 4:44 am

I’ve always enjoyed watching birds – great pictures!

Vidya Sury December 12, 2011 at 4:49 am

🙂 Thanks qandlequeen! I like how they preen!
