Description

Three Yellow Bitterns in the reeds in the marsh along the east side of the perimeter road next to the Patancheru Tank. The heavy overcast conditions, and light sprinkles of rain this morning seem to have brought these normally shy birds out into the open, much like the normally crepuscular Ruddy-Breasted Crake (see below).

Note: This species is seen on the ICRISAT-Patancheru campus nearly every rainy season, usually when the weather is wet (so few people are out observing them). The rainy season range of this species in South Asia appears to be substantially greater than indicated in the books, perhaps because the birds don't bother to read!

I also have photos of this species from Manjira Reservoir, just to the northwest of Sangrareddy in Medak District, on NH9.
