Third Sunday Trail-16th May 2010

Too much of unavoidable travel these days has resulted in my missing the Third Sunday Outings couple of times and this month I was away in Mumbai. It being Mahesh's wedding , it was obvious that he could not make it.And It was very nice and kind of Chandu to have agreed to lead the group and we are sincerely thankful to him.

Its nice to note that group spotted the Yellow Throated Bulbul which we had not listed so far around this area.

Of course we are also thankful to Swami Vishnumayanandaji for providing breakfast to the group and letting the group do the birding in their campus.
