Black-tailed Godwit



We are planning to visit the Kutch or Jamnagar for breeding plumage of waders from long time.  Finally, Anand and I decided to try our luck at Nalsarovar. I reached Nalsarovar at 6 am while my friends Dr Anand Patel, Viren Desai and Hiren Joshi (all came for breeding plumage) were little late and came around 7 am to lake. With formal introduction with each other, we started our search for breeding plumage. All the birds in lake look like they are in breeding plumage. Their plumage is different from usual. When we enter into the lake, we saw the Pheasant-tailed Jacana and then we saw this beauty. It is in its full breeding plumage and foraging in shallow water. More about them, you can find on http://www.escapeintothewild.net/2016/07/black-tailed-godwit.html .

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
