Ranthambore Birds

A pair of Spotted Owlets, Ranthambore

As with any trip to a national park, part of the fun in Ranthambore (at least for a nature lover/geek like me) is to see how many different species of birds you can spot or even capture on camera.

On this trip we had lots of good sightings including a couple of species I haven't seen before. This post has a small selection of some of the best sightings/pictures.

Juvenile Crested Serpent Eagle in the canyon through which you enter Ranthambore

Grey Francolin

Male Bluethroat

Male Plum-Headed Parakeet

Grey Heron

A handsome male White-Naped Woodpecker

Nearby we found his companion: Female White-Naped Woodpecker

Black-Tailed Godwit

Rufous Treepie - a very bold bird which will eat from tourists' hands
