For anyone who hasn't seen any of these diaries, these photos are my dad's. I can't take responsibility for them. My dad travels to India quite frequently, and he always makes some time for birding. He sees some incredible birds there.
Like the Asian Koel:
More to see if you'll follow me over the jump...
Tickell's Blue Flycatcher
Paradise Flycatcher (female)
Male Paradise Flycatcher. Look at that tail!
White-Bellied Drongo (Drongoes are in the same superfamily as shrikes, crows, and Old-World orioles.)
Scaly-Breasted Munia (Related to weaver finches)
For more birding fix, look for Dawn Chorus on Saturday mornings, hosted by lineatus. Also look for "Photo Breaks" from juliewolf throughout the week.
Also, plf515 has a meta series called Daily Kos University, where he (/she?) links to all the "teaching" diaries from the week. Check it out!
As usual, The Left Wing is sort of an avian open thread. Feel free to share any bird (or any critter) pictures/stories, whether they're from the other side of the world, or from your own backyard.
