Gulakmale - 2

This was my second visit to Gulakmale, which is a rather renowned birding spot. This time of the year, though, you have to deal with the dry heat. So the birding excursion was shot. I was lucky to spot a couple of species that hadn't featured in this blog yet.

94. Richard's Pipit (Anthus richardi)

95. Black-winged Cuckooshrike or Smaller Grey Cuckoo-Shrike (Coracina melaschistos)
Thanks Anonymous for the id.
