Kaikondrahalli Lake – Birdwatching

Kaikondrahalli Lake

We went to Kaikondrahalli Lake the previous weekend for a morning walk. It also gave me the opportunity to do some bird-watching. It is now the season when migratory birds arrive to this part of the world.

  1. Little Grebe
  2. Great Cormorant
  3. Little Cormorant
  4. Darter
  5. Spot-billed Pelican
  6. Purple Heron
  7. Grey Heron
  8. Indian Pond-Heron
  9. Cattle Egret
  10. Median Egret
  11. Little Egret
  12. Painted Stork
  13. Spot-billed Duck
  14. Black Kite
  15. Purple Moorhen
  16. Common Coot
