All ye lovely birds

One another passion I have other than PSoC is bird watching and photography.  I enjoy trekking into jungles or waterbodies during week ends with my Canon DSLR camera and 300mm telephoto lens and shoot birds (with my camera ofcourse).  It is a great experience seeing all those colorful birds in their natural habitat and is a great stress buster.  Here are some photos from my collection.

Spot Billed Pelican in Flight - Shot at Karaji lake,Mysore, Karnataka, India, a waterbody thousands of migratory birds come from all over the world every year.  It took 1/2 an hour and 10's of shots to ge this perfect photo of the majestic bird in flight.  Due to dwindling habitat of water bodies, this bird is now classified as "Near Threatened"

Australian Ibis - Resting after flight - Shot at Karanji Lake, Mysore

Yellow billed babbler - This is a very noisy bird and is always found in groups of 7 to 10.  Also called as 7 sisters.  When I was showing this photo to my boss, he observed that the bark that the bird is sitting looks like a snake's head.

Rose Ringed Parakeet - I shot this in Birla Institute of Technology in Pilani Rajasthan which I had visited to conduct a PSoC workshop.  This bird patiently posed for me till I got the perfect shot.

Red Wattled Lapwing - Shot at Birla Institute of Technology, Pilani.  This bird which is considered to be very shy always tries to keep distance from human beings.  But surprisingly, this bird came quiet close so that I could get a very clear shot.
