Birdwatching and its photography are becoming a fun task for birdwatchers and wildlife lovers. They have a gala time spotting some rare and mind-blowing birds at the National Institute of Tourism and Hospitality Management (NITHM). The team of 6 birdwatchers led by A Surekha, secretary, Deccan Birders, spotted more than 40 varieties of birds.
The team was invited by NITHM Director Dr. S Chinnam Reddy to the Deccan Birdwatchers Society's campus and went around touring to find some exquisite birds. Rare birds have always been a beautiful sight to watch, and the campus has showcased some fantastic bird species.
The team members that went touring around the campus are Shafaat Ulla, Nand Kumar, BD Chowdhary, Shika Chowdhary, and Dr. Samuel Sukumar. The birdwatching team spotted some rare birds like Coppersmith Barbet and Wattled Lapwing. Also, the team found other rare reptiles and small birds and spotted some rare butterfly species like Common Leopard and Plain Tiger.
The team who were satisfied with the rare sightings appreciated NITHM for maintaining the facility, which is also known as Miyawaki Forest. The society that hosted the team was highly pleased to find these rare birds and have decided to document the photographed species and create a manual titled "Birds of NITHM' for the same. The team is also willing to train students at NITHM on birdwatching and the pleasure of sighting rare birds.
