Images from Corbett - March 2008


























Ghost of the Grasslands

This female Hen harrier was scanning the Dhikala chaurs (Terai grasslands) one late evening when quite abruptly it braked mid-air, looked down and launched an attack on something in the grass…..unfortunately, we were late and could not find what the prey was…….Surely, for not only the reptiles and rodents, but also for the small birdes like stonechats, prinias, munias and cisticolas……the harriers loom over them like the "Ghosts of the grasslands"…. …

Nice Pictures Adesh. My favorite are the pied flycatcher shrike, the laughing thrush and the owl.
