Birds of Karanjikere, Mysore

-2020 update: Had to remove photos due to technical issue (site where I had uploaded them went down)- will try to restore -

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

Peacock (More Photos of Peacock, with fully open feathers, in a separate post) and Pegions
elican and Purple Moorhen

A duck with its head immersed in water and a little Cormorant drying its wings

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.
