MakaLidurga, which is a 1350m high hill near Doddaballapur, is a great place for bird watching. Here's my harvest.

17. Baya Weaver (Plocius phillipinus): We found a little lake that was surrounded by Baya Weaver nests. This male was in the process of building his nest.

19. Drongo Cuckoo (Surniculus lugubris)
This juvenile was engaged in a dogged fight with a group of crows (a murder I believe it is called).
