March 2023 - Week 2 Roundup


Asian Open Bill Stork

Sighted on: 13.Mar.2023

The Asian Openbill Stork is one of the more common storks found in many parts of India, a wide gap between its bill is its unique feature and from which it gets its name. The opening in its bill allows it to feed on crustaceans and other invertebrates easily. Surprise summer rains brought new life to the grass on the banks of the Kabini, which attracted large-legged waders like this Asian Openbill, which was seen resting on the banks with its legs folded hallway up to the knee. As soon as the boat approached closer, it stood up and looked at us curiously.

Green Bee-eaters

Sighted on: 15.Mar.2023

The Indian laburnum is in bloom and attracting many insects, including honey bees. The Green Bee-eater feeds mainly on honey bees, and as the laburnum flowers were attracting them in hordes, we were able to observe the bee-eaters closely as they patiently waited for their opportunity to strike.

Mr. Kabini

Sighted on: 17.Mar.2023

The death of Mr. Kabini, the famous bull elephant with the longest tusks in the area, left Kabini with a great void. Recently we have been sighting what we hope will be his successor - a magnificent tusker with similarly long tusks. It is now apparent that he will carry Mr. Kabini's legacy forward. To give you a perspective of the length of his tusks, I have attempted some creative framing - I do hope you like it.
