some of the better photos of the birds of the desert national park.

An interesting collection of birds, all well photographed.  I especially
like the wingspan display in # 21, and the scruffy guys in # 22.

By record you mean making a record of what you saw rather than setting a record?

Very cool, thanks for sharing.

comments welcome.

There are a few that I’d prefer cropped tighter, pictures of the birds rather than so much of the context. In any case I don’t think there are any in there that I’m not envious of you for getting.  Good job.

Nice collection of photos of a variety of birds. #24 stands out to me.

I agree with Mark .. but tied with 24 , for me, is 7 and 21...  I love
the shrike especially.. nice geometry.

Had trouble seeing these a day ago.. flickr sometimes is annoying.

From this set, I very much like #15 and #25. And of course #22, because who could pass over a picture of cute (?) chicks.
As others have noted, the hawk in #24 is quite nice, but I prefer #25 because of the out-of-focus greenery in the background.

Subash, your trip was obviously very worthwhile. I'm a bit surprised at
the abundance of birdlife in such a hostile environment but I suppose
there must be sufficient food & water. Glad you achieved your objective
with the Great Indian Bustard. I looked it up - the world's 2nd largest
Bustard after the Kori which we have in Kruger but I've only ever
spotted a few over many years. There is another large Bustard here too -
Stanley's, a bit smaller than yours, found on the Highveld.

thank you Alan, Anne and Stan and others who looked at the photos and
commented.

the thar desert but couldn't sight it this time.
