One of the highlights of visiting India for me has been all the different birds. From the first days in Delhi with clouds of ominous black kites to a jewel coloured kingfisher in kerala it’s been a joy to spot and watch lots of new feathered friends.
Here is a list of what I’ve seen – I have used my own classification system using a ‘say what you see approach’ – it’s not exactly scientific but it is pretty accurate.
