Good one, you should get hold of a book on Indian birds to avoid the confusion. Where did you shoot this in Bangalore? Not often do we see Whimbrels around here...
Thanks everyone.I shot this picture near Varthur lake. Are Whimbrels resident or migratory??
Super catch. Never heard of whimbrels in bangalore!
Wow.isn't something special then.To be precise, i shot near the paddy fields of Varthur. The green back ground is infact the paddy fields.
Wow Whimbrels in Bangalore....... Excellent
