Birds of IIT Guwahati

I have moved to a new home http://sillyreflections.com See you there! You can read this article directly here: Birds of IIT Guwahati

Ever experienced the joy one feels by walking on grass, besides a lake with cool breeze flowing through past our ears, the early morning sun rays just warm enough to give that pleasant warmth!!? Just when you are about to get lost in that amazing beauty, you hear the soulful song of Indian Koel, singing for its mate, making you forget all the madness of the world around you! That is the joy I experience every time I leave my room for an early morning walk! These birds make that walk even more exciting and interesting, so much so, that it feels like sin even if I miss one day!.

This is a pictorial list of birds that one can see at Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati. For a near exhaustive checklist compiled by me, visit this page.

  1. Nice photos. Would like to go to India to have a look at the birds there. Just now many birds are over for the winter including Whooper Swans, Canada Geese, Barnacle Geese and they will be flying back north in March.

    In Spring (March-April) we can look forward to the Swifts, Swallows and Martins flying over from Africa and India for the summer.

  3. I see that I would recognise many old acquaintances in India – the spotted dove, bulbul and myna were deliberately introduced here. The bulbul holds on in spots, but the myna in particular is a nuisance bird now. A good approach (IMHO) to document the birds of a particular neighbourhood, and some lovely shots.
