Notes:
Mom came for birding with us today, for the first time. She was all ready with her sports shoes, water bottle and looking out for birds with her, "Anu, to paha bagla!" and "kiti sundar ahe to hirwa pakshi!" She spotted a sun-basking green-bee-eater and Anu thought it was a small blue kingfisher. Anu got some great shots of parakeets, barbets and beetles
