Our good buddy Dan Haas has been posting some beautiful pictures of Peregrine Falcons in an, uh, romantic mood. In that spirit, and with spring nearly upon us, we offer up this picture of Painted Storks who were necking and clicking their bills together - bird smooching? - as we strolled by in Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary.
Bharatpur was amazing, a true avian haven (heaven...?) The sanctuary has a potential species list of over 400, and we saw some really cool birds like Steppe Eagle and Sarus Crane. So far, unofficially, we've nabbed 166 species of birds in our time in India. Saw the Taj Mahal yesterday. Words don't suffice for how cool that was. Spending a last day in Dehli before heading home very early Saturday.
Big HIs to all our blogging buddies!!!
MANY more pictures to come. Here's a Eurasian Spoonbill:
