We are not able to go anywhere for birding  from last 3 weeks so this Sunday we went to nearest birding spot Jessore Sloth Bear Sanctuary.  Last time we visited Jessore Sloth Bear Sanctuary, we saw Red Spurfowl. Therefore, this time we went there with a hope to find it again. However, we didn’t find anything, not even a single bird (excluded commoners) seen during full trip due to lots of school picnic buses. While returning to parking area we heard the typical thudding sound of woodpecker. When we reached at the tree, the woodpecker flies away. We decided to wait for it to came back at same tree as we know that most of birds having tendency to visit same place many times. It came back after 15 minutes; it is a White-naped Woodpecker – female. We clicked few shots and again it fly away and lost in deep woods.

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
