This post is a Curtain raiser to a wonderful treat, my first BIRD FESTIVAL in the heartland of what is termed as DACOIT LAND near ( 60 kms) the Taj Mahal, Agra , Uttar Pradesh, India.
It is also a curious and coincidental mix and blend of various threads that are linked to the ongoing series of Blogs both of which are on the banks of much revered and Holy rivers namely THE RIVER KAVERI ( do see the blog titled NATURALLY BEAUTIFUL) and THE GANGES.( Kashi on the banks of the Ganges is the common thread in the ongoing blogs that commenced with BLISS IN KASHI)
The Chambal Bird Festival on the other hand is held in close proximity to the RIVER CHAMBAL which bears the burden of many a curse.( a series of blogs such as A RIVER CURSED tell the tales from the past)
The Featured Image highlights the key aspects I experienced in my maiden experience at an International Bird festival. Dense FOG ( the picture captures the same) , a gorgeous untouched Rural Countryside ( see the Sheep/Goats and the Hay Stack) and the Wetlands ( providing a Natural habitat to many Species of Birds) . A Purple Heron (Scientific name Ardea purpurea) and Black winged Stilt ( Scientific Name Himantopus himantopus ) can be identified through the layers of Mist and Fog.
Highly acclaimed International Speakers from across the Globe shared their knowledge and experiences in specially constructed Tents.
Documentaries unveiled tales of Environmental victories and how focused Individuals can make a difference.
There are so many pictures to share and stories to tell as I ventured out of New Delhi without any prior bookings and a hastily assembled last minute travel plan.
What an Enchanting and exciting experience, hold on as I tell you the tales of the Lands that lie on three Indian Rivers.
