It is a delightful sighting of pair of cinnamon bitterns in Jabalpur. In this city these birds are rare now. During our childhood we used to see them flying. Probably intrigued we used to keep a regular look out for these birds in flight, usually with a mixed flock of egrets.
The birds are probably nesting in the reed beds near my house. We will look to see if it is possible to photograph them in flight since the nest would be unreachable and we would not like the nesting process.
