Third Sunday Trail-20th June 2010

I missed it again...And feeling terribly sad that I was not around to attend this trail, when Karthik along with Ulhas was there.Their company is a huge learning experience for any one. I was told that everyone was awestruck looking at some of the macros that Karthik showed them.I am very sure it must have been an enriching experience to all the 30+ participants that day.

I am thankful to Anand again ( anand.srinivasa@gmail.com) for compiling the list which is as follows :

Common Tailorbird
Purple Sunbird
Coppersmith Barbet
White Cheeked Barbet (Call Heard)
White breasted Kingfisher
