More India Photos

Just had to post these photos from our dawn Elephant ride at Chitwan before proceeding with the birds from higher elevations.

Another favourite from Chitwan was this Kalij Pheasant that was feeding by the path and didn't take any notice of our jeeps.

Well as promised here are a couple pics of the Grey-crowned Prinia from Pangot - oh how I wish I had my usual Nikon lens!!

It was pretty good up at Pangot, which is 10-15 kilometres above Nainital and a nice picturesque village. Much better to stay here than in Nainital I think. In the garden of the lodge Streaked Laughingthrush and Black-headed Jays were very common.

Also quite common here was Russet Sparrow.
