One of the most common, visible birds in New Delhi. Evenings brought the pleasant irony of watching them fly among the paper kites flying from every roof.

While searching for Mangalavanam Bird Sanctuary, a small forested wetland at the north end of Ernakulam, this guy approached me and exhorted me to follow him to "many birds." The birds ended up being giant bats (I may have misheard him), which was just fine by me. Thanks, Basil!

Definitely one of the highlights of the trip. We asked the guide if we could see them, so at one point we stopped, and he jumped into the woods for 5 mins, found some, and lead us back to them. We literally stood there looking at them for 5 minutes before we were able to see them. Insanely well camouflaged. Many thanks to Sudeesh for being such a great guide.
