Let’s run down for about 4 years on the memory to the month of December, 2016. I was living at the outskirts of Theni and I had great time birding on my backyard. All kinds of Warblers, Sunbirds, Hoopoes, Pitpits, Larks, Ioras, Prinias, Shrikes, not to forget my old pal Spotted Owlet and lot more birds used to be there. And this guy on the frame below, “Large Grey Babbler (Argya malcolmi)” was also one of the commonly seen bird there. They used come in groups, singing out loud and start feeding on tiny bits of left out food in home, that we used to keep for our dogs. After rain, the winged termites came out of the ground these guys had a treat on that day. 😊
