Clicked on 4th Jan, 2021 near Bidar outskirts.
After the dream like trip to Bidar last time, decided to visit again. This time we were gifted by well perched sightings of harriers (both Pallid and Montagu). On the way, at Niranja reservoir sighted a flock of Northern Shovelers from an extremely close range.
My father sighted a Pallid Harrier - male perched on tilled soil. After taking a few steps towards the Harrier, I realised that there was a Montagu's Harrier - male perched just a few metres behind the Pallid Harrier. The Pallid Harrier was dosing off, whereas the Montagu's Harrier was busy preening itself. Moving slowly on foot, I come into an extremely close range with the harriers and after getting good shots of the birds , I decided to leave with harriers being undisturbed.
Happy New Year everyone .
