Trip Details

Location:
Haladgaon (Saiki) Lake
Observer:
Rohan Chakravarty
Trip Date:
Dec 27, 2012 From 07:00 am To 11:00 am
Total Species Seen:
75
Notes:
The highlights of the trip were a flock of about 150 Greater Short-Toed Larks and 9 Black Storks. We were after the Red and Black-headed Buntings but got the Grey-necked Buntings instead on our way from Saiki to Paradgaon, that seemed to be quite accustomed to the scrub habitat along the kachha roads. At Paradgaon, we spotted a good number of Bar-headed Geese. Accompanying me were Rohit Chakravarty and Jay Kulkarni
