Will post a pics after I am done editing them ..

Here is some info on the park:

To reach the park, you need to take a left from under the flyover immediately after Apollo Hospital (while coming from Ashram). Then take a right from Kalindi Kunj enterance and then a left from the next T-junction. The gate to the park comes on the left side, some distance ahead.
You can take your car/ bike inside. The fee is Rs. 50/- for the car and Rs. 30/- per person.
Migratory birds can be seen in great numbers in the Winters .. provided it is not foggy!

Here are the pics (at last) from my trip to Okhla Bird Sanctuary : http://www.flickr.com/photos/7564891...7623370748588/
It was too foggy to get too many pictures.

I went to Mehrauli Archeological Park a few days later. Here are a few pics from there: http://www.flickr.com/photos/7564891...7623371086600/

The pics seems to be good...didn't you get closeups of birds?

Also Mehrauli Archeological Park pics are nice ones and one of the off track places to see specially people who are intrested in forgotten/ruined places getting buried into history.

btw which cam do you use?

Yeah .. couldn't get any closeups because of two reasons:
a. It was too foggy that day to see beyond some distance.
b. I was using kit lens which has limited zoom. My friend had a 20x point and shoot .. but no use in the fog.

I use Nikon D60.

I want to free some pet birds. Would it be ok to free them neara bird sanctuary like okhla? There are five Australian parrots and if they are freed in the city they may die.

They will most likely die if you free them anywhere. Pet birds lose a sense of danger and are much weaker to counter the diseases. Better put them for adoption.

Btw, are they yours, and did you buy them?
If you find my posts confrontationist, please bear, I am an old frustrated guy who has nothing better to do than sit on rocking chair and curse the world whole day
