Ragihalli & Bannerghatta National Park

After our first photography trek to Ranganthittu, harsha was eager to capture some more birds.
We heard about ragihalli from the great birding boys Vaibhav & Sushil (member of Bangalore – People & Place Blog )
This time Ravi, joined our bandwagon...

We were First timers for this place and had no proper clue about the location.

We started around 5:45 AM from our house, Through Nice road, it just took 25 Min for us to reach the main road where we had to take a turn to ragihalli.
We stopped nearby a small hotel to have a hot sip of coffee and continued again to our destination.

As per our information we went 5 km ahead and reached ragihalli,

We crossed one more village,

May be, we had thought birding is so easy as we did it in Ranganathittu...
Never, Along with the equipments,  It requires greatest ability of human being..
That is Patience

One more reason for non visibility of birds was the climate, It was more cloudy.. (birds might be still asleep)

Finally we stopped @ a place of complete silence and came out of the car. Now, we noticed couple of birds coming out to show us their face..

Before Marriage
After Marriage
After few shots.. and no more birds on the sight. We were unhappy with ragihalli and we thought of visiting bannerghatta national park for a safari.

Since we were at the border of the village , we took another route through forest area and reached Anekal route.., While coming back to bannerghatta, we had to come via same main road, where we had to take turn for ragihalli.

This time, Harsha's soul tempted again to check if any birds have woken up from their sleep.
We started another lap to ragihalli, This time we found some more winged angels..

after some time we came back to main road, had nice breakfast & headed towards bannerghatta.

As soon as we reached the park, we jumped in for a safari, which was kind of mediocre experience for the animal shots.
