Ep 9. Birds in Villages and Farmlands

Bird Nerds

May 25 2023 • 29 mins

Leaving the city behind, this week we travel to the countryside with farmlands, orchards and surrounding villages. These farmlands are rich not only in food and resources, but also buzzing with bird activity. Farmlands are favorite foraging grounds for granivorous, insectivorous and frugivorous birds. Gregarious munias and avadavats, solitary pipits, melodious larks, chatty babblers, majestic peacocks, skilled hunters like black-winged kites and Indian rollers and the screechy barn owls welcome us in this habitat. Our conversation is peppered with some interesting aspects about their behaviour and characteristic features which will help you identify them in their natural habitat.
