So far in My Travelogue, I have featured some Bird Watching posts in my Viralimalai post and Perungudi Lake post. In these cases, I had to go somewhere to see the birds. But this one is a unique one.
One fine evening, I went to close the kitchen window. And there, just on the other side, on the guava tree branch, was this gorgeous White Breasted Kingfisher. I ran to grab the camera and started clicking pics continuously.
A White Breasted Kingfisher (Halcyon smyrnensis) is a species in Kingfisher which is more of a land bird than a water bird. It has switched over to more of a terrestrial diet like insects.
At one point this gorgeous bird turned to me and looked at me face to face.
Still, it didn't bother to fly away. Then I really do not know what it thought of. I almost started to pose for me!!!
Finally, it flew away. And I ran to the terrace to see if I could spot it. I luckily did. It was at the opposite electrical line near the pole!!! Lucky me!!!
