In this trip to India (teaching for MS again) we're in and out, with no time for sight-seeing, but there's always time for bird-watching! I got up early this morning and got some photos of some excellent birds. I've included a couple here, and the rest you can check out in the album on Facebook (anyone can access it) at

(Edit: here's another album from the next day, with a *pair* of owls!

The bird on the left is a Spotted Owlet, and on the right is an Indian Pond Heron. Click the images for larger versions. Enjoy!
