It was lazy birding but we could not sight new migrants on this Sunday. We saw some black winged stints and streak throated swallows which breed under the Gaur Bridge on the way. the other birds we saw where:

Black lored tit
Tickell's Blue Flycatcher (Calls)
Chestnut  Headed Myna or Chestnut Tailed Starling
Common Myna
Red Jungle Fowl
Black Hooded Oriole (Calls)
Juvenile Golden Oriole
Black Drongo
Honey Buzzard
Short Toed Snake Eagle
Pariah Kite
Rose Ringed Parakeet
Plum Headed Parakeet
Barred Jungle Owlet (Calls)
Common Iora
Common Wood Shrike (Calls)
Brown Cheeked Fulvetta
Little Grebe
Tailor Bird
Grey Breasted Prinia
Plain Prinia
Ashy Prinia
Bronze Winged Dove
Greenish Warbler
Little Cormorant 
Jungle Babbler
Large Grey Babbler

The vegetation is still very dense and visibility is not very deep hence less avian species is noted. The arrival of migrants is yet to peak.  We are keen to meet with our feathered friends from  abroad.
