When it comes to weekend birding, most of the time, its with Bangalore Birding Group [bngbirds] and if its Saturday, its with Deepa Mohan. Parry [Parikshit] and Me always decide at the last moment, most-of-the-times just before we get to sleep on Friday night, and inform Deepa. And thanks to her, that she never says 'No'.
So, this time the place was Hulimangala, a village on the Bannerghatta-Anekal Road, around 5 kms from Bannerghatta Circle. It has small group of trees (mostly ficus trees) where you can find lots of Rose Ringed Parakeets. There is also a small water body nearby (but since Parry and Me had to come back, we skipped going to the water body), where you can find the regular waterbirds. so, a perfect place for an early morning birding around the Bannerghatta Area.
