Keoladeo National Park Or Bharatpur bird sanctuary – Part 3

Indian Cormorant

Before I conclude the series on Bharatpur I must tell you about an extremely well documented blog by Pritesh Kulkarni http://pritskulkarni.blogspot.in/search?q=Bharatpur. I assiduously read his blog which helped me prepare well and made my trip worthwhile. In fact when my guide asked me if I’d wanted to see any particular birds, I confidently reeled off some names from his blog ! Thanks a lot for your meticulous capture, Pritesh. Here is my last set of captures from Bharatpur. Season is from November to February.
