i was interested to click Short-toed Snake Eagle as one my friend had clicked in our area so i told him for location n he shared on phone so i went on 31/12/15 around at 8am on bike as unable to reach thru car due narrow road.
Reached around at 8.30am but didn't seen the Short-toed Snake Eagle on a cut coconut tree where this beauty regularly sit.waited for 30-40min but it didn't come so thought to go ahead for another birds.enjoyed clicking Indian Roller,Black Drongo,Stonechat,etc n return again that place after 1hour but bad luck continued n decided to go back home.
while i was driving bike,i was looking both side of road n after drive of 1km stopped the bike as i had seen different looking bird far away from road,focused in camera but unable to identify bird coz it was more then 800mtr away.parked the bike n started walking towards it very carefully n also clicking for record shots.
at one point i reached and clicked,identified as Black-eared Kite so lil disappointed as its commoner n thought to return but its looks different mood with elevated feathers like in excited phase.so very carefully again approached for close shot n luckily it didn't fly away even i am noticed and here is result.
