Aquilas of Vembanad

Greater Spotted Eagle, Cheepunkal, Kumarakam 22 Jan 2012

Oriental Turtle Dove, Kumarakam 22 Jan 2012

During the 2012 Vembanad waterfowl count I surveyed Kaipuzhamuttu and Cheepunkal areas with Adv Sureshbabu Thomas, Manu and other friends.  The highlight was a pair of Greater Spotted Eagles combing Cheepunkal fields.  We also spotted an Oriental Turtle Dove there which is a second sighting in the region.  A Chestnut Bittern was also seen.
