Neighborhood Bird Watch

Don’t go by the color of the water, this is a ditch in the neighborhood where lapwings are a regular feature. I have observed that these birds lay their eggs on the ground and if by mistake if you start walking that way, they scream and scream.

I had first clicked this bird on a lotus leaf! I have said this many times and I say it again, I became a bird watcher only after acquiring a zoom lens. And I get my birds identified here.

I get to see a lot of Mynas. Like this pictures because it felt like they were sitting on a  swing.

And finally even though this is not a bird I see them so often. And I know it is eating rice because someone had left cooked rice for the birds and squirrels on this wall.
