Manas Wildlife Sanctuary, Assam, India.(Part III)

Day 3



The tea gardens....


Grey backed Shrike





Yellow -footed green Pigeon.


Common Hoopoe



















Red-vented Bulbul.
After lunch we started out on our Safari...not a very lucky one as we were not able to spot any birds as the weather was not on our side...
Red Junglefowl.












After a while black clouds gathered in the sky...


Diya enjoying the ride...

and the rains start...
and surprisingly the rain stops and we take a break...that's our guide...





















The sun sets...



It gets darker...


We even have the jeep lights on...even if it's only 4p.m...
 Forest department lights fire to dry grass in patches for fresh vegetation to grow.

  11. I often surprised that a bird that looks like that can be called a Common Hoopoe - if that’s a common bird I want to visit!

    Great set of pictures.
