Enjoying Nature & Birds at CKBS

I'm not sure about names of all the birds and tress I see around when I go on these jaunts in the lap of nature but that doesn't stop me from trying to capture them in all their splendour. On this particular day, I chaperoned three young kids who were dying to go the this Bird Sanctuary. While I taught them the joys of appreciating nature, I managed to capture some of it with my lens. You'll are most welcome to let me know the names of plants/trees/flowers which I have no clue about.

Morning spent enjoying Nature at Tollygunge Club

The Tollygunge Club with its vast expanse of Trees scattered all over its sprawling 18-Hole Golf Course is another place that offers me a good opportunity for Bird Watching. Here are some captures from today's visit.
