Short-toed snake eagle in flight
Was happy to get an in flight shot of this raptor. December is a great time for birding in LRK. In the 3 days that I spent here, was able to see plenty of raptors- STSE, steppe, eastern imperial eagle, merlin, kestrel, laggar falcon, harriers (marsh, montagu's), peregrine, short eared owl, thousands of flamingos, the lovely common cranes and not to mention, plenty of the resident bird species. Was hoping for a glimpse of the MacQueen's bustard unfortunately it eluded us. Among mammals, was able to see foxes, jackals, wild asses, nilgai, jungle cat, though wasn't able to catch any of the desert foxes. All in all, a great birding trip and I am looking forward to go again this winter.

White-bellied sea eagle,
They can be seen quite commonly in coastal areas, however at times they are seen inland too. Really skilled hunters, fish form nearly half of their diet.

Rajan R D Nice catch Gaurav.. i was fortunate to see them in action in South Goa.. Zuari river. Great for birding.

Painted stork
A large wader which spends most of its time in shallow waters looking for fish. I was told by our naturalist that by an age of 18 months, adult storks become voiceless. The only sounds they make after that age are slight moans and the clattering of their bills.
