Kingfisher at Talakad

We had visited historic site of Talkad to see visit numerous temples. Being country side we could see various birds.



One of such bird is Kingfisher near the temple pond.

The way this lovely bird dives into the water catches its fish with such unerring accuracy and flies off triumphantly always amazes me every time. !

We see many Kingfishers near my home, which is merely 3km from Karnala Bird Sanctuary in Panvel, but this bird looks so colorful and Brilliant!
