The title is the name of a pigeon and the bird I am talking about is a koel.
Birdwatching had happened only in Mysore so far. And it has been good lately too. 51 species of birds last Sunday (01-03-2009) at Karanji lake. No photos of any of those. Yet.
It was a new experience today when I saw a koel (Eudynamys scolopaceus) in the bathroom of the mens' hostel
LSC team comprising of Gow and myself heroically ensured that the koel flew away safely into the ISEC campus. You suppose it could be spying for the leopard. If it has been you'll know it when I blog about a leopard in the bathroom tomorrow :)
