Yellow-bellied fantail
A bird which is not shy and quite a poser. Found it on the side of the road along a slow moving stream in the outskirts of Corbett. An interesting fact from wiki - It used to be placed in the family of the fantails, but DNA analysis has shown it to be a close relative of the fairy flycatcher.

Gazelles (Chinkara) in the countryside on the way to Bikaner
While on the way to Bikaner, you will find plenty of gazelles on the fields on either side of the road. These are open grasslands and scrublands which are well suited to the chinkara. An absolute delight to watch.

"Perhaps, time for a nail cut?"
Merlin is a small falcon that winters in Little Rann of Kutch. While I saw plenty of kestrels, occasionally came across the odd merlin.

Found this bird on the side of a road while driving near Mukteshwar, Uttarakhand. Is this a streaked laughingthrush? Would be good if someone could confirm.

Arijit Kanani Think you have identified it correctly - streaked laughingthrush

Hi guys, not really a tip.. needed some information. Was planning a trip including Velavadar / Blackbuck NP and some other parks in Gujarat. Was going to spend 1 night in Velavadar. I was looking for a budget accommodation for easy access to the park. I am aware that there is a FRH but not sure about how the booking is to be done, does anyone have any idea about it? Any other information for stay will be great. Thanks

The Safarist Thank you all for your suggestions. Questions to the community could very well fit in. We will look into this and test it out over the coming few days.

Maulik Desai Great inputs from all! ... @Arijit - I understand the Blackbuck lodge is in excess of 10k per night, but if budget is not a big constraint, would you personally consider it as providing good value in terms of overall service, facilities, location etc? Any input will be appreciated.

Chestnut-bellied sandgrouse (Female)
Though they are found in hot and arid climates, they are extremely dependent on water and can travel as much as 80km in a day in search of it.
