Birds of Karanjikere, Mysore

Karanji lake and gardens in Mysore is a bird watchers’ paradise. I couldn’t explore this place fully due to time constraints, so another visit is due during next Mysooru visit.

Here’re some photos taken during the last visit.

Green Bee eater and White Dove
I’m told these are called Pheasants.
A different coloured Pheasant and Brahminy Kite

Thanks to Ram for his assistance in naming some of the above birds. We spent about 90 minutes or so at Karanji lake. Should spend at least half a day during next visit.

One more thing.. If you visit this place in the month of May.. do visit the butterfly park which is at the dead end of the walk. Beautiful. Couldn't resist talking more about this place.. it is was once my morning walk destination.
