photographing and learning about wildlife
Kayaler bagan or Kayal's garden is now a bird sanctuary in the heart of Kolkata city. Although called a garden, it is not a landscaped area with only garden varieties...rather everything growing wild is preserved.Old, epiphyte laden trees rub branches with bamboo groves and wild vines trail all over . So called weeds flourish. It is also called Chintamani Kar Bird Sanctuary. ...a 17 acre small enclosed area.
I recognised it ONLY because I had seen shots on PN. Thank you, PN.

Your welcome, SukanyaDatta....
Thank you maplemoth. The best part about quite a few of my spottings is that I saw the species first on PN and thought how wonderful and then, a little sadly....I will never see it....and one day, out of the blue....it (or a close relative) was there!!!
A very interesting photo....
