  3. Wonderful Compilation of pictures. You seem to have a great time seeing all the good captures. Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary is really a great place to visit all these bird beauties. It is Cuckoo paradise. You got Drongo Cuckoo, but you might have heard calls of the Large Hawk Cuckoo & Indian Hawk Cuckoo. Wonderful documentation.
