Painted Storks and Other Migratory Birds From Delhi Zoo (India) Images of Birds - Kalpana Image Archives
Since 1960s, Delhi zoo annually hosts around 300-600 painted storks and other migratory birds that arrive here in October and leave in April of the following year. These images of painted storks and other migratory birds from the Delhi zoo are from two separate visits.
The first visit was in February 2010. It was a nice sunny day and I mostly saw painted storks and a few little cormorants.
The second visit was on a foggy morning of December 2011. I saw lot of painted storks with baby storks but also a few black necked storks, pelicans and little cormorants. Due to the fog, these images are less clear. The birds here know that they are in a secure place since they are not afraid of persons visiting the zoo. That is how, I could stand under an old dead tree and click pictures of a black-necked stork sitting on the top.
I love painted storks, characterized by the scarlet plume near the tail. I can watch them for hours without getting tired, though the screechy baby storks make tremendous noise that reminded me of the time when our son was a baby!
