Ep 11. Birds in Hills, Cliffs and Quarries

Bird Nerds

Aug 10 2023 • 34 mins

It’s time to test your fitness as this week we will be exploring the bird diversity at hills and cliffs, and quarries. The birds we talk about today have a wide distribution across India, however the flora varies with region, latitude and elevation. We are exploring a habitat of the Deccan Plateau region, where the average elevation of hills is around 600 metres. The terrain is mostly arid, but plantations are common here, pockets of grasslands are rampant in these hills, and occasionally there is dense vegetation to be found. We will come across birds of grasslands, scrublands and forests as well. Join us on our trek uphill as we encounter grey-breasted prinias, little swifts, tawny bellied babblers, Bonelli’s eagle, crested buntings, the burly Rock Eagle-Owl and the swishing and swooshing Shaheen Falcon. We also have some interesting tidbits about the now endangered White-Rumped Vultures.
