Entranced by Namdapha – The Avi-Fauna

I will always remember Namdapha as my first real birding trip. Listening to calls of the birds and trying to figure out from which direction they are coming, identifying bird calls (which I was not able to do ofcourse, since I just started bird watching), scanning every tree branch for movement, watching out for moving shapes and finally even identifying the birds by their silhouttes…everything was so much fun!

Also I can rattle off a few bird names now… some of the birds that I saw and heard at Namdapha included the Pied Kingfisher, White throated Kingfisher, the Great Pied Hornbill, Sultan Tit, Rosy Minivet, Pied Falconet, Drongo, Jungle Mynahs, Spider Hunter, Laughing Thrushes, Shrike, White Capped Redstart, Pied Wagtail, Pied Forktail, Cormorant and the Leaf Bird.  Here are some of the pictures. Most of them aren’t too clear as the birds were mostly perched on the topmost twig of the tall trees and I wasn’t equipped with state of the art technology, but few pictures are quite decent.
