” Wear it like a king!! “
I had only seen this magnificent Crested Kingfisher only in books and photographs on the internet.
As we were strolling around in our jeep, scanning closely for a single sign of tiger around. we arrived at the route that was a cliff side of a small hill on the bank of river Ramganga.
Loads of trees were hanging to the edges of the cliff soil, leaning down towards the river.
Ideal branches to use as perch and scan around for pray for many raptors and hunting birds.
We came across 3 to 4 different raptor species as we were moving ahead, when my colleague who was sitting beside me pointed towards a branch and whispered look a crow.
in next couple of seconds as our jeep got to halt we realized its a crow sized bird with a bigger head size.
It was my first encounter with this magnificent bird, perched so close to get a clean neat shot of it.
We took a couple of photos and it flew away immediately.
