Introduction

Red-wattled lapwings are large waders, about 35 cm long. The wings and back are light brown with a purple sheen, but head and chest and front part of neck are black. Prominently white patch runs between these two colours, from belly and tail, flanking the neck to the sides of crown. Short tail is tipped black. A red fleshy wattle in front of each eye, black-tipped red bill, and the long legs are yellow. In flight, prominent white wing bars formed by the white on the secondary coverts.

Behaviour

It usually keeps in pairs or trios in well-watered open country, ploughed fields, grazing land, and margins and dry beds of tanks and puddles. They occasionally form large flocks, ranging from 26 to 200 birds. It is also found in forest clearings around rain-filled depressions. It runs about in short spurts and dips forward obliquely (with unflexed legs) to pick up food in a typical plover manner. They are said to feed at night being especially active around the full moon. Is uncannily and ceaselessly vigilant, day or night, and is the first to detect intrusions and raise an alarm, and was therefore considered a nuisance by hunters. Flight rather slow, with deliberate flaps, but capable of remarkable agility when defending nest or being hunted by a hawk.

Its striking appearance is supplemented by its noisy nature, with a loud and scolding did-he-do-it call, often uttered at night

Breeding

The breeding season is mainly March to August. The courtship involves the male puffing its feathers and pointing its beak upwards. The male then shuffles around the female. Several males may display to females and they may be close together. The eggs are laid in a ground scrape or depression sometimes fringed with pebbles, goat or hare droppings.

In culture

In parts of India, a local belief is that the bird sleeps on its back with the legs upwards and an associated Hindi metaphor Tithiri se asman thama jayega (“can the pee-wit support the heavens?”) is used when referring to persons undertaking tasks beyond their ability or strength.

In parts of Rajasthan it is believed that the laying of eggs by the lapwing on high ground was an indication of good rains to come. The eggs are known to be collected by practitioners of folk medicine

Tiger Sighting At Ranthambhor-Safari Wildlife Gallery Trip Story

Tiger Sighting At Ranthambhor

Tiger sighting at Ranthambore now a routine for me.It has been my 10th visit I can guess in last two years. This time planned to take my family along with me. Though they were not showing a bit interest as the previous visit with them was not successful in their point of view. For me whose interest more in forest and nature than the Tiger itself so  I never get bored and frustrated by no tiger sight trips.

We planned to get the evening and morning safari to maximise the chances of visibility of Tiger. As that was the only concern of my family as I have already told. I made the booking for a nice luxurious hotel Vanya Mahal and let them know about that at last moment. I was successful in convincing them about at least the pleasant stay and nice dinner we were gonna have. …That was the only part they were excited for.

Just reached there in time. Got our booked gypsy and headed on to Jungle. Zone Number 5 was allotted. The driver who recognised me as I had already shared my one tiger sighting experience with him in my previous trip. So he was also excited, and he told guide that though he is an Indian you would get the tip as fatty as you usually get from foreigners.Sorry but this is the fact there …All nature guides and driver think that Indian visitors are not much crazy about wildlife as they don’t offer them the required tip they expect..This is their thinking we can’t change that.

As time passed by..I was also anxious..!! Only half an hour left and I was about to face the fury of my family when we would reach back to hotel..!!

 We had been searching whole jungle.Our family was repeating the same dialogue..!! No use..no use..there is no tiger at all.!! And the only word my family was uttering is that they just fool the visitors.

Alas..!! Tiger was seen..!! yes.Very close..!! She was sitting in a shady ground..bushy area…little twigs was across her face.!!  Resting.! Tigress T 73 yes I asked the guide her ID.

I pointed my camera Canon 7 D and lens mounted 100-400 which was ready with all required setting.Started capturing rapid fire shot. My family got busy in excitement. For me, only excitement was that I  could now explain them the worth of visiting this safari trip again and again.

While I was busy capturing with my rapid fire shot.!! My family was busy taking a selfie with her…and yes recording. Some video record we could also manage to get ..though not as clear as it should be.

Overall..an excellent experience..!! Got her full sight in all her activity..resting, coming towards water source, drinking water, taking bath, recording asand again her majestic walk towards us..!!Watch the video recording done by my kids.

Looking at my family..a sense of excitement and satisfaction I could see easily on their face..!!

Recording was done in a hurry..!! So sorry for  poor quality..!!

One more thing the .. the burden of tiger sighting on our next morning trip was also reduced ..!! that was also a relieving factor for me.!!  Watch The recording

We were happily coming back to our hotel…Now the tiger sighting was the only talk  my family left with while we were coming back.

That is  not all about my tiger story.!! There are much more to share..!!!

Baya Weaver Bird Image,Description,Download,Camera setting

Baya Weaver

Is house sparrow-sized weaver bird that most commonly found in grassland and cultivated area. Baya Weaver is most famous for its’ retort-shaped nest. Nest is like a marvel piece of engineering

Baya Weaver makes it nest on acacia tree or tall palm tree. Location deliberately chosen is nearby any water sources. And nest hanging over a water body. This is to protect from predators.

No other bird is as must talented and skilled as Baya Weaver.

Nest location are chosen in a place that is not within the easy reach of predators. Location of the colony is decided by some leaders in the group who are skilled and experience. They survey the site first and then choose to develop the colony. All nest built on a particular strategic deterrent idea.

Baya Weaver-Weaving of nest

Weaving a nest is sure an artistry work. You can spend hours watching them spinning. One study revealed that Baya Weaver makes around 5000 flight to collect green long slender leaves. Baya Weaver neatly weaves and interlocks these leaves.  There are at least 3500 stitches are made.

The whole construction process is divided into three stage,-

  1. Construction of helmet- it is done by male Baya Weaver
  2. construction of nesting platform-Prepare the floor and chamber- This Process done jointly by male and female. The male usually constructs an outer wall of the chamber, female build a suitable nest within the chamber.
  3. Construction of entrance point

In the first stage, Baya Weaver decides the placement of nest and anchorage point. Then proceed further to get the foundation ready.

As the nest building process usually happens in monsoon season.The placement of nesting platform inside is all directed by the wind direction and the torrential rains.

With the completion of the first stage, male seeks its mate.After mating male would continue bringing new raw material for building next stage and female would remain inside.

This whole engineering task completed in 18 days. There is sure a consistency in their work like a real engineering job. But there is no compromise in the skilled craftsmanship and the intricacy of the final design.

Baya Weaver builds a new nest each season. You can see many new nests hanging around with the old one. There is always evaluation and feedback taken from the old construction to create a new one with more adapted and suitable for the weather needs.

Baya Weaver knows the capability and capacity of human and other animal predators. Yes, there is no doubt, westernmost common predators forever is, the human being. We usually raid their home, take away their hard job just to decorate our garden and porch with ready made ornament of nature.

I appreciate a lot of this beautiful work of art and the 4000 dedicated act of weaving in completing this. process.So whenever you see a Baya Weaver nest, just admire the beauty, and the hard work poured into it.

Bow my head to the prowess, productivity, and the skill this wonder bird is delivering. That is the best example of craftsmanship, Cutting edge technology, strategic planning. A lot of humankind can learn from this feathered friend.

Brahminy Kite-Behavior

The breeding season is from December to April. They nest especially on mangrove trees, usually on small branches and sticks. Nest is bowl shaped with a lining of leaves around it. They show considerable site fidelity in the sense that nesting is done on same location year after year.Both partners take part in nest building and feeding. But female participate in incubation.

Their primary food is dead fish and crab. Sometimes also steal prey from other bird. This behavior was especially is known as kleptoparasitism.

Young one also indulges in play behavior like dropping leaves and catching them in the air.Like many other birds, they roost commonly on the largely isolated tree. Their number in one roost can be from 400 to 600.

Brahminy Kite in my gallery-

Most of my shots of this bird are from zoological garden Delhi. Thou I have identified it many times in the local field. I could also capture some flight shot in outskirt region of my town. But I could not get some close shot to display the detail and fine feather.

My frequent visit to the national park made it possible to get some good portrait shot of this beautiful bird of prey.I have in my gallery a special place for all my zoo pictures. I have also published my post on zoo photography.

Zoo Photography- A must for the beginners.

Zoo Photography-Technique,tips, setting and some Free animal images for download

Many My wildlife photographers friends would get angry when I discuss shooting wildlife in a zoo. But it is fun.  An easily accessible and where the subject is a bit predictable.

The following tips will help you to capture better photos when you go to the zoo or a zoological park I would say..!!

Equipment I carry with me is both my Canon body Canon EOS 5D Mark 3 and Canon EOS 7D Mark 2 and My all time fav. Lens Canon Ef 100-400 mm and 24-105 mm Kit lens.

But that does not mean you all have to carry big lens and a big body with you. A compact camera with a high zoom fixed lens like one in p series of Nikon or Canon Powershot six series can do a good job.

  • Tip 1.: Use a large aperture to shoot through fences. By using a large aperture, your lens can capture light wrapping around the barrier and it will be practically unnoticeable in the photo.
  • Tip 2 Flash? Never…!!! Follow zoo’s rules.  It is not a good idea to use a flash. It is prohibited rather in some nocturnal animals habitat.
  • Tip 3 Shoot in a shadow area. Chain and bar link fences will appear  in photos if they have sun reflecting off them.  Find a shady portion of the fence and it will likely disappear.
  • Tip 4 Stand as close to the wall as possible. The closer you are to the fence, and the further the animal is away from a fence, the less the fence will be noticed. But please follow the rule. Always respect the instruction given there. Never cross the restriction area.
  • Tip 5 Buy a proper ticket for using the camera. Zoos own the rights to the animals in their zoos, so you cannot use the photos commercially.
  • Tip 6  Always check the proper timing and schedule.  Plan ahead. Before visiting there to avoid disappointment at the last moment.
  • Tip 7 Get there Early.- Reach there early before the visitors start flocking in.
  • Tip 8  Be patient. Very much important. Don’t worry if you see any animal sleeping there. Wait n wait..!! You may get some watchful action if lucky enough. I have missed many actions shot just only because I was impatient in the beginning.
  • Tip 9 Background is more important than the animal itself. If the background is cluttered, unnatural, or distracting, the animal photo just won’t work.  Learn to watch the backgrounds wait for the animals to get closure and background a bit far so you can get a blurred background.
  • Tip 10: Find an interesting perspective. You have to be the bit crazy if you want to shoot an animal with a different viewpoint. Just to get some different and particular shot is standing out from the rest find an angle lying down, from a bench, from the top of the fence. This will differentiate your photo from the day-to-day boring snapshots by the other visitors.
