Birds At Deepor Beel




On Sunday, I headed off to Deepor Beel with my friend Mitali and her cousin. Deepor Beel is the largest water body in the outskirts of the city. In winter it's where all the migratory birds come.We left around 7.30 in the morning. It's an hour's drive away. As you can see from the first picture, it was foggy and the horizon could barely be seen. But there were birds galore. It was my first bird-watching trip so I was happy to see birds in great numbers. It didn't matter that I didn't get pictures of birds from colder climes, as such.








I don't know most of the names apart from the cormorant, the heron, and the eagle. Even the pylon was packed! I hope you've enjoyed the photos...despite the cloudy backdrop. I'll surely be going back to Deepor Beel. Now I'm thinking of sunny day bird pictures.....
