|Ducks in flight at Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary|
I'm a day late in posting. With the marriage season in full swing there are quite a few social commitments. Hence the delay. I'm sharing two pictures from our Sunday trip (details in my last post). I've never seen so many birds at any point anywhere. This was my first so you can imagine the excitement. The first picture shows ducks in flight. There were hundreds of them. The wetlands surrounding this nature park is a haven for migratory birds. This year's census was conducted in January by the Assam Forest Department and an environmental organisation. The week-long survey ended on January 29, 2012. According to the survey there were 12,000 birds of 26 species at Pobitora. The second photo shows a kingfisher on the wires, and beyond that are hundreds of ducks, herons, egrets, water hens, and storks. The migratory birds stay on till it gets warm. The last of them leave by March. I'm glad we made that trip. This is surely a sight that I'll remember for a long time.
