Colourful bird with a red beak waiting to catch breakfast. the white " bib" gives it the name.
The third of the large lakes near my house...this one is a little further away than the other two. The sad thing is there is a market in front and a lot of rubbish has accumulated on the side of the lake...not to mention the flowers used in worship that are immersed! Then there are the huts dotting the perimeter....
This is the state bird of West Bengal, India. The state where I live. Bengalis are known for their love of fish...so is this bird. Makes sense!
