Birding Diaries – Purple heron in Goa
Carambolim Lake in Goa is a great place to do some bird watching . I was there last year and had some amazing sightings in just under an hour. There were so many birds – lesser whistling ducks, garganeys, purple moor hens, glossy ibis, open billed stork to name a few.
And there was this lone pretty purple heron in the marshes. It was sitting for a long time, almost like it was in meditation, contemplating life, the pros and cons . And then in one moment, it just took off, getting out of its comfort zone, seeking a dash of adventure. Perhaps it needed to exercise its wings or find something more exciting for breakfast.
Enjoy birding ? See more birds at Carambolim Lake. Have you ever done bird watching in Goa or do you have a favourite haunt ? Do leave a comment here telling us about your experience.
Bird watching in Goa!!! that was unheard before. I always felt that Goa is the place of beaches and churches. Nice to find that there is a place for bird watches.
Wow. I don’t claim to know anything about birds, but these photos are still amazing. And the purple heron is beautiful. Fabulous!
Wow – How very gorgeous!
Thanks for sharing all these lovely things.
