Whenever we visiti Ahmedabad its late evening when we reached in outskirt of city. So we prefer countryside road which still has little wild life opposite to the busy direct road which take us to Ahmedabad fast. In monsoon evenings mostly bird activity are less or we can’t able to locate them due to greens. On that lucky day we saw group of 5 to 8 Golden Jackals. It was their normal habitat. They are mostly seen in group half hidden in green-grass. They look cool in green colour background.   
 Once we try to find the Golden jackal in night. We can trace them in moonlight only because of their communal calling. It reveals their location but did not succeed in photography. In this video you can hear their calling. The vocalisations of the golden jackal are similar to those of the domestic dog, though more "plaintive". Its howl consists of a wailing "Ai-yai! Ai-yai!" sounds.

One such hobby is bird-watching. It might seem simple to read the word and guess that it is very easy to watch the birds. But it is not what it seems. It needs a lot of dedication, determination and consistency to master ‘the art of bird-watching.’ It takes years of patience and perseverance to be a good birdwatcher. What you choose as your hobby is not as important as to what hobby chooses you. You have to be the chosen one.   Dr. Pankaj Maheria, a Professor at GMERS Medical College, Valsad (South Gujarat) is one such Chosen One. Birds have chosen him as a medium between their worl
