Around 117 migratory species of birds have flocked into the capital city this summer, as marked by twelve teams of birders who set out at daybreak with their cameras and binoculars for the Delhi Summer Bird Count’19.
A sheer variety of bird species have made their season’s sojourn at places like Okhla Bird Sanctuary, Yamuna floodplain, Basai wetlands, Najafgarh Drain, Rajokri, Delhi Cantonment, Asola, Bondshi and Sultanpur, to name a few.
Fifteen rare species were sighted this year, including the Indian pitta, white-belied drongo, Marshal’s iora, white-bellied minivet, painted sandgrouse, oriental pratincoles, white-tailed stonechat, striated babbler and many more. The bird watchers even spied out 35 endemic bird clans , which are found nowhere else but in India.
So, pull out your cameras and rush to these birding joints to catch a glimpse of these pretty critters!
