Me and Naren aren’t bird watchers but this trip to Corbett National Park, the child decided to surprise us. And here are some Birds of Corbett he spotted there.
Me and Naren aren’t bird watchers. I think we lack the patience that is required to spot birds, the fact that err I have to maintain pin drop silence. And then there is the point of getting up very early in the morning. But we went for a small vacation to Club Mahindra, Corbett and the child decided to surprise us by showing interest in birds. Here are some Birds of Corbett he captured.
We had fixed for the early morning safari using the Club Mahindra safari desk and it was a breeze BTW. There were people to guide us about areas of Corbett, which is better at what time. And at the end, all we had to do was tell them what time we needed the jeep to arrive. We were mostly ready to come back without spotting anything. After all, deep winters is not really the season for spotting. Besides, my luck with animal spotting isn’t that great either.
But we were in for a pleasant surprise that cold January morning. The bundled-up child sat on the front seat of the jeep and was chatting with the driver about birds IN HINDI. We have been trying to talk to him in Hindi, he understands but hardly ever responds back in it. But since the driver cum guide knew only Hindi, the child was asking questions and talking to him showing great interest in birds.
Me and the man looked at him with pride and happiness while he clicked these pictures that morning (most of them anyways). And before you go all aww, he has forgotten all names by the time he reached home. So do leave a comment if you know which birds are these. He has been sitting with his book and trying to identify them as well and we are all finding it such a fun activity.
Still these pictures make me glad about not being lazy and getting up that morning. Do you like them?
Also stay tuned, because coming up next is a post with some more fun pictures and stuff to do at Club Mahindra, Corbett.
