February 2023 - Week 4 Roundup


 

Osprey

Sighted on: 26.Feb.2023



The Osprey is a fish-eating raptor found widely in the Kabini backwaters. Ospreys have the ability to detect objects underwater, and once they see a fish, they plunge feet first into the water to catch it, at times completely submerging their entire bodies. During the boat safari, an Osprey was seen hunting a fish right in front of our boat. After making a successful kill, it flew to a nearby tree stump to enjoy its meal.

Leopard

Sighted on: 27.Feb.2023



During the morning drive, I was informed by a passing safari jeep that they had heard the alarm call at a particular place, and I decided to go and see if I would get lucky. Even though we spied a langur giving alarm calls, we failed to see the predator that the langur had seen. After spending some time at that spot, I headed towards a nearby waterhole, hoping the predator had gone there to quench his thirst. At the waterhole, we saw a beautiful tusker satiating his thirst. After drinking his fill, the tusker moved away towards the place where we heard the alarm calls. I took a detour to that very spot in the hope that the tusker would disturb the predator. And, as luck would have it, we were rewarded with a great sighting of a magnificent leopard as it emerged from the undergrowth.

Golden Jackal

Sighted on: 2.Mar.2023



This morning we had a very rare sighting - a Jackal! Nagarhole Tiger Reserve is known the world over as one of the best places in India for sightings of the three big cats. A healthy tiger population is an excellent indicator of the ecosystem's overall health. However, it can lead to smaller predators and scavengers like the Jackal being pushed to the park's fringes, making this sighting in the park's center even more special.
