Some Common Birds of India Images of Birds - Kalpana Image Archives
Ever since I started taking pictures with my digital cameras, I had great difficulty in clicking pictures of birds. It required great deal of patience and a fair amount of luck. The only pictures of birds I could take was in the zoos. However, in 2011, finally I did manage to click some pictures of birds, some common birds of India. I think that these pictures are still quite basic, but I hope to get better with time. Probably I would also need some better more powerful lenses for my camera for taking decent bird pictures.
I also did not know the names of many of these birds and it took lot of efforts and search on internet, to identify them one by one. Two persons (Roxy Mathew and Tarun Mishra) also helped in identifying a few birds.
