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

The Purple Swamphen is a large rail. It is mainly dusky black above, with a broad dark blue collar, and dark blue to purple below. As the Purple Swamphen walks, it flicks its tail up and down, revealing its white undertail. The bill is red and robust, and the legs and feet orange-red. For such a bulky bird, the Swamphen is a good flier and will readily take to the air to escape danger. Purple Swamphen is a good swimmers, but prefer to wander on the edges of the water, among reeds and on floating vegetation.

The Purple Swamphen is found around freshwater swamps, streams and marshes.

The diet of the Purple Swamphen includes the soft shoots of reeds and rushes and small animals, such as frogs and snails. However, it is a reputed egg stealer and will also eat ducklings when it can catch them. The Purple Swamphen uses its long toes to grasp food while eating.

Breeding: 

Purple Swamphens are generally found in small groups and studies have shown that these consist of more males than females. More than one male will mate with a single female. All family members, and occasionally the young from a previous brood, share in incubation and care of the young. The nest consists of a platform of trampled reeds with the surrounding vegetation sometimes being used to form a shelter. Often two broods will be raised in a year.

Tiger said to be one of the nature’s most feared predator. It can kill an animal which is as bigger as twice its’ own size.

Tigers are most recognizable for their pattern of dark vertical stripes on reddish-orange fur with a lighter underside

Tigers are apex predators, primarily preying on ungulates such as deer and bovids. They are territorial and generally solitary but social animals, often requiring large contiguous areas of habitat that support their prey requirements. This, coupled with the fact that they are indigenous to some of the more densely populated places on Earth, has caused significant conflicts with humans.

The ancestor is saber-toothed cat. If it loses its canines (tearing teeth) through injury or old age, it can no longer kill and is likely to starve to death.

Tiger prefers living alone.It tries to keep its’ territory free of any rival. Territory is around 100 sq. KM

The roar of a Bengal tiger can carry for over 2km at night.

Tigers use their distinctive coats as camouflage (no two have exactly the same stripes).

They are usually nocturnal hunter.Although tigers are powerful and fast over short distances, the Bengal tiger cannot outrun fleet footed prey such as deer. They generally hunt alone and ambush their prey as most other cats do, overpowering them from any angle, using their body size and strength to knock the prey off balance. Successful hunts usually require the tiger to almost simultaneously leap onto its quarry, knock it over, and grab the throat or nape with its teeth

If the kill is large, the tiger may drag the remains to a thicket and loosely bury it with leaves, then return to it later.

Females give birth to litters of two to six cubs, which they raise with little or no help from the male. Cubs cannot hunt until they are 18 months old and remain with their mothers for two to three years, when they disperse to find their own territory. Like domestic cats, all tigers can purr. Unlike their tame relatives, however, which can purr as they breathe both in and out, tigers purr only as they breathe out.

Unlike many cats, tigers are strong swimmers and often deliberately bathe in ponds, lakes and rivers as a means of keeping cool in the heat of the day.

Lions have been known to breed with tigers (most often the Amur and Bengal subspecies) to create hybrids called ligers and tigons. Such hybrids were once commonly bred in zoos, but this is now discouraged due to the emphasis on conservation. Hybrids are still bred in private menageries and in zoos in China

Darter or Snakebird mainly tropical waterbird which inhabits freshwater lakes, marshes, and swamps. They are mostly sedentary and do not migrate.

Sankebird Darter Ghana Bird National Park

The term “snakebird” usually refers to their long thin neck, which has a snake-like appearance when they swim with their bodies submerged, or when mated pairs twist it during their bonding displays. “Darter” alludes to their manner of procuring food, as they impale fishes with their thin, pointed beak

Their preferred mode of flight is gliding and soaring.On dry land, snakebird walks with a high-speed gait with wings quite widespread just like pelicans do. Thye are frequently found along with other wading bird like the heron, egret, and Ibis but they are highly territorial.

Snakebird feeds mainly mid-sized fish.These birds are foot-propelled divers which quietly stalk and ambush their prey; then they use their sharply pointed bill to impale the food animal.They do not dive deep but make use of their low buoyancy made possible by wettable plumage, small air sacs, and denser bone
