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

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

    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!

    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!

    @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 😀

    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.

    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.

    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. 🙂

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