Sharing few images from my last visit to Keoladeo National Park,Bharatpur, Rajasthan
After the 2009 season, the bird sanctuary is seeing its good old days. The park  has this year got all the water it needs to attract large number of bird flocks.I could see that the Migratory Waterfowl has come back.

The main attraction this time was White Pelicans, which I have spotted in huge groups here for the first time.

 

                                  Here's a small group of Pelicans preening in the mist, this is one of my favourite images.
