Birds of many feathers!

It's time to take a look at the winged visitors to the Delhi zoo, as it's almost time for them to fly back home, after the winter migration! Rosy billed pelicans, black ibis, pond herons, little egret, and my very favorite painted storks......the photos say it all. I skip the animals in cages, as personally I do not subscribe to the policy of caging animals, for whatever reason, and head straight to the lake with water birds on and around it. So if you're in Dehi, do make a trip to the zoo, adjacent to the historical Old Fort (which merits a trip on its own) and marvel at the wonders of nature.

 Painted storks share space with the cattle egret....

 while pelicans socialise in the water!

or soar majestically over head.....

more painted storks on another island, with black ibis and egrets
