My morning schedule changes completely when I am at Home in Himachal Pradesh. At Delhi, usually day starts at 8:30 am or 9 am for me. But when in Mandi (HP), it starts around 6 or even early. All these birds around my house keep calling me to come out and that is good enough inspiration to wake-up with camera :). Let's check out this Photo Journey and help me knowing the exact names of these birds.
Red Vented Bulbul
Yellow Billed Blue Magpie
This is one of the most beautiful bird I have seen around my house in Kot(Hatali) of Mandi district in Himachal Pradesh. Usually I see many of the long tailed birds around Mango trees in our garden. Credit for inviting environment around my house goes to my Grandmother and dad. Both of them are quite active is keeping the areas green with different types of vegetable plants and fruit-trees.
Another long tailed bird sitting on a huge tree in front of my home. This tree is somehow quite special for every bird. Probably this one gets sun-light first beacause of it's height.
These birds make most of the sound as they can be seen in huge number in the morning. Apart from these a very small bird can be seen, but I couldn't click any good pic of that bird as it keep moving most of the times and movement is very fast/abrupt. A yellow colored bird with black circle around eyes.
These birds can be seen during morning and remain there for a longer period of time as compared to others. Somehow, quite calm as compared to others. The birds with longer tails keep moving most of the times. I have seen them sticking to one branch while they are eating something or ttargeting for some food at a place which seems dangerous to them.
Here is the bird I am talking about. This one was sitting on the tree for a very long time and as my father left the kitchen garden, it flew down to pick something and now flying towards her home probably...
Some of the birds comes till the main window to ensure no one in house miss the morning fun outside :) ... In last many years, I never noticed these birds and recently some of my friends made me realize about these and now I happily welcome them at home.
This is one of the common bird which can be seen in most parts of Himachal Pradesh and they are found in groups usually.
If you know names of any of these birds, please comment back with Pic-No and Name. I will update the post accordingly with due credits to you.
Another common bird of Himachal Pradesh. In local language, we call it 'ghutari' :) ... but interested in knowing it's global name.
