Anahinga or Indian Darter at Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary


With colours and shapes that match their habitat, animals are masters at the art of camouflage. Despite being such a large bird, this Anahinga was not too easy to spot at Keoladeo National Park (earlier called Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary).

Soon, more pictures coming up along with the history of the park, its birds and tips to help you visit.

  1. Great capture, Vibha. I too have a picture of darter bird from Bharatpur but the one I have captured is merely a silhouette. 🙂

      Thanks, Umashankar. Given that I’m not a regular bird watcher, I had to spend quite some time identifying the birds we saw.
      Did you know there are 3 kinds of cormorants in India? Am having fun with the next post – should be up soon.
