Birds of Coorg


As we learn more about birds we try to accommodate a day or two within our family trips for birding. These pictures were taken around Virajpet (South Coorg) and few within Nagarhole National Park. from our recent trip in 2108 October.

The birds found here are very common to birds of Kerala as they are very close by.
