Watching The Sarus Cranes (Scientific name Grus antigone) near Parsaul Village, Greater Noida, India is a lovely Birding adventure my friend Hema and I have often taken . ( more will follow on the birds in subsequent blogs)
However while photographing Birds on the leafless tree we were witness to an Amazing Play enacted by a Kitten, An Indian Palm Squirrel and a Kingfisher.
The Kitten and Squirrel are on the extreme Centre- Left in the picture below and the Kingfisher is the Blue-Brown Spot in the centre.
This Little Goliath is actually chasing away the Kitten seen in the Fork of the Tree in the Featured Image.
The Kitten had thought the Indian Squirrel (Scientific name Funambulus palmarum) would be easy game, but was in for a Little Surprise.
The Striking Blue colour of the White Throated Kingfisher ( Scientific name Halcyon smyrnensis ) was what first caught my attention before I saw the Main Drama was actually being enacted on the Main Trunk of the Tree.
The Kitten beats a hasty retreat and Jumps onto the adjacent Village Wall as the Little Goliath stoutly defends his Territory.
Kittens are curious by nature and this one is no exception as it looks at the Indian Palm Squirrel in Wonder.
My fellow blogger and now dear friend Nia is from Turkey and adores Cats. I posted this specially for her as the Cats near my house still elude my camera.
The Enchanting Real Life Drama brings a smile to my face as I recall the entire sequence even as I write this blog sharing my entertaining experience.
