Jungle Babbler at Ratangiri

When we were in Ratangiri to visit heritage Buddhist sites we came across several birds. One of them is Jungle Babbler.



It is a common bird of the Indian subcontinent which as well as in forested areas. They feed mainly on insects, but also eats grains, nectar and berries.

Confession time - I've never heard of a bird called a babbler. I've been called a babbler but that's another story!

I know they are here somewhere, Rajesh, but I keep looking for brilliantly colored birds. I rarely even see peacocks.

My post is of my sweet little granddaughter chasing shadows.

I'm headed back to CA Dec 3...was here five months this time.
