SHAHEEN FALCON is rarely found in this region of West Bengal. I dont find any previous written record.
I was taking photos of Kentish Plover on the river bed. Suddenly all the little birds fly away to see that raptor hovering over them. I was quite nervous to see that predator at just 20 m away. But I slowly moved towards him to capture his beauty. Avoiding me, he was busy to bath and to quench his thirst.
