    Default A Gem of Sundarbans

    The sighting of Buffy Fish Owl is really a matter of luck, because it is very rare in eastern India. It is also very shy, but I have manged to get a portrait shot of it in the cloudy monsoon condition.
    Buffy Fish Owl is an unique species of Sundarban Mangrove ecosystem and it is now found in the Sundarban Tiger Reserve, West Bengal, India (near Dobanki Tiger Camp). Really the Sundarbans has still remained its ecological entity and mysterious nature.

    Beautiful. Lovely eye contact and nice sighting in the open. It was inside the camp or you took from the boat? Hope it is there the next time we visit Sunderbans . Thanks for sharing.

    Superb shot.. A bit wider composition would be a cover page material IMO. Have you seen the nesting this year? Is it the same bird? Any expert or local Guide's opinion?

    Great to see this image from Sundarbans. It is a biodiversity hotspot. Hope it can survive the relentless onslaught of concretisation and pollution from human population explosion.
