Kingfisher at Bhitarkanika

In Bhitarkanika National Park we  hired a boat and cruised in the lake. Event it is off season we wanted to try our luck to spot some birds.


People have spotted here 8 varieties of kingfisher. And all of a sudden we spotted one of them flying across the lake and finally it sat on a far of tree.



Apart form kingfisher one can also get to see other birds like wood pecker, horn-bill, bar headed geese, pintail, white bellied sea eagle, tern, sea gull, waders and many more.

So many species and variations in one place. Like an avian paradise.

8 species of kingfisher. That's not fair Rajesh, here in the UK just one.

One of my favorite birds. Kingfishers have a lot of personality. Thanks for the info from your area.

I think we have only one variety of kingfisher here north of Toronto so I am feeling a tad envious of the variety you can see!
