White-breasted Waterhen

Posted on Updated on

Amaurornis phoenicurus
Nepali Name: सिमकुखुरा Sim Kukhura

Notes:
1. Reacts to playback very well.
2. Keeps to the thickets as much as it can. That was the reason why seeing or hearing this bird frequently around Kathmandu, it took a while to get a good shot.

Indian Pond Heron

Posted on Updated on

Nepali Name: आसकोटे बकुल्ला (Aaskote Bakulla)

Notes:
1. The transformation this bird goes through from non-breeding to breeding plumage is just amazing.
2. Kind of hard to spot when resting. Flies off with a flash of white. Wonder how does that make sense evolutionarily?
