  1. Hi Sumeet,

    Pretty good outing, i am planning to visit this lake tomorrow.

    You have perfect flight shots.

    just a correction, the images you tagged as "Greater spotted eagle" is "Black Kite"

    Thanks,
    Naveen

    1. Thanks Naveen
      Yes, you were right, one out of those two was Black Kite, however the other is Greater Spotted Eagle. Difference lies in the tail. Greater Spotter Eagle doesn't have that fork in its tail like the Kite. Tail of the Greater Spotted eagle is distinctly visible.
      Hope you had a wonderful outing as well.

    1. HI Jayendra, yes I'm in Hyd, we do have a bird photography group and we go out regularly. Ameenpur I've been for 5 times now, hence don't have any quick plan. If you want you can join us for other outings. We are planning to go to Narsapur sometime soon. You can share your email with me, will keep you informed.

    it seems only natural when you see something exciting or interesting in the natural world, you want to capture it or record it in some way. Cameras are a great way to do just do that!

    2. I recently made a quick morning trip to Gandipet park. However, the park was closed until 9.30. And there weren't any migratory birds. There were a lot of resident birds indeed :) Was this the place that I had to scout, or the back side, the other side of lake?

      Also, morning 6-10 is a good time or evening for Gandipet and this one :)

      Sorry for too many questions. I just needed few information :) I love your clicks! Hope it isn't much trouble.

    3. the park is bang opposite golconda resort. No migratories, only resident. For migratories you will have to walk through the gandipet lake from either chilkur side or the shankarpalli side.
