One of the most common birds of India, the Indian Pond Heron can be spotted just around any water body. Or even green paddy and wheat fields across the country.

This Indian Pond Heron bird was flying across the man-made pathway amidst the fields in Taleigao, Goa, not too far from our house here.

Pointed beak, sharp yellow eyes, and the flapping feathers make it lovely to watch them fly. Just like any other bird is at its best in colors, aerodynamics display, a sharp eye and focused direction this one too is majestic in-flight. Every bird has its typical flight style and so does this heron.

Any bird photographer would love to capture birds in flight. So do I, however, it is just a hobby. Hope you enjoy my posts on birds and nature in general.

Browse this website and you can find many pictures of the birds captured in flight. Also many bird images from national parks like Satpura, Pench & Bharatpur.

Recommend read for the birding enthusiasts on my travel blog.

  1. Wah.. What a timing.
    The best about travel is: When one is not traveling and reading/watching other travelers post/photo still one is traveling via memories when he/she visited/clicked something similar. I am happy. Keep traveling, keep writing. Cheers !!
