Hello there, happyarun!!
Good to see you back on this thread. Please keep posting pics - Even if it is not from India!! I think it is definitely welcome.

There is a beautiful Hindi film song -
Panchhi nadiyan pawan ke jhoken (Birds, rivers, gusts of wind),
koi sarhad naa inhe roke (no border inhibits them),
sarhaden insaano ke liye hain (borders are for people),
socho, tumne aur maine (think about it, what have you and i),
kya paaya insaan hoke (obtained by being born as humans?)...


Good to know that you are in south Africa. A couple of years back my friend did a trip to Kruger's national park!! He had such lovely pics from that place. I wish I could visit it some day. I am posting a few pics clicked by him (with due permission, of course) !






I just loved this below pic!

Any idea about this one?

I'm guessing this one must be a common bird, but I know not its name.

Not a bird expert or a watcher, but did visit Bhigwan for the flamingos a year back, could find one adult and two young ones only. But there were quite a few other birds, some which I can name, many which I can't.

Such a wonderful bird bath and its not even summer yet and so many birds visiting it. One more month and I think you will have pics of different birds sharing that bath tub.
