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.
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

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.
