Common Hawk-Cuckoo 
β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”-
We were at Hebbal lake for almost 3 hours and while we spotted numerous birds, butterflies, beetles and damselflies, we just couldn’t spot the elusive Common Hawk Cuckoo. 
As we were about to leave, a bird flew past us and perched on a tree at a distance. We slowly approached the tree and  were delighted to finally see the beautiful Cuckoo. It felt like it had come to say goodbye and was among our most unforgettable experiences as it sat there posing. 

Stay tuned for the video.

Spot-billed Pelican
β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”-
Pelicans have long, broad wings with a big surface area. This helps them catch rising currents of warm air called thermals, which lift them up without any need for flapping. Once up high, they can position their wings so that they can glide. 
As it saves energy, many such birds use thermals to travel long distance during migration.
