It was the halt of Apr as well as a totally impromptu conclusion yesteryear us every bit nosotros did non desire to immature lady the river terns that religiously see Bhadra each twelvemonth for almost 3 months. Nestled inward the midst of the Western Ghats as well as surrounded yesteryear the Baba Budangiri hills of the Chikamangalur district inward Karnataka, the identify is a perfect weekend getaway from the hustle bustle of the city.

On reaching the river nosotros boarded a fairly large boat along with some other group.  The waters were calm as well as the skies were clear.  As nosotros approached the tiny islands inward the river, nosotros could run into buzzing activeness of hundreds of birds on them.  The grey-dull dark color of the river terns perfectly blended with the soil as well as rocks of the islands making it rather inconspicuous from a distance.

But every bit nosotros moved closer, 1 could non attention but wonder at their large numbers.  Our boat human being cum direct was a friendly chap who explained to us that the numbers peak inward May every bit the immature ones hatch.   We could run into the females busy warming the eggs spell the males hovered merely about as well as occasionally swooped downwards into the waters catching a fish or ii with their brilliant yellowish beaks.  The prey is for the woman individual birds that are stationed to protect the eggs that are probable to live on attacked yesteryear other species similar ibis as well as herons.  I must acknowledge that this variety of coordination as well as and thus called ‘division of duties’ betwixt the genders had me awe struck as well as is definitely worth a lesson or two!
