The honour for the image of the Month 2013 goes to Kaleeswara Srikanth for his image of The Black-chinned Laughingthrush.

I liked the details in the flowers giving us an idea about the habits and habitat of this endemic bird. Selecting this was a tough affair as this kid's image by Jitendra Katre had a very good composition and mood. http://www.indiawilds.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12531
