Before our trip to Mandvi,myself and Pankaj decided to go GRK for Great indian Bustard but our friend Dilipsinh told that we can sight only Great indian Bustard at GRK n other sighting will rare so we postponed our trip of GRK for next time n went to Fort Mahadev
Again we wake up early aprx around 5am n check out from our hotel,started journey towards Fort Mahadev.we stopped at one village n take tea n breakfast.we reached at Nakhatrana where our another friend Nirav Pomal was waiting n then went to Fort Mahadev. we parked Elantra coz its ground clearance was low n went in Nirav's Car.our target was for Black Francolin,we were late.
after all we got good shots of Chestnut-bellied Sandgrouse Male and Female, Jungle Bush Quail.
We further went inside for Black Francolin but its  Chestnut-bellied Sandgrouse day n sighted 4.we moved back n roaming in car here n there.it was around 10am n thought to return,sudden i see black color type bird shape n thought for Black Francolin so asked Nirav to stop the car n focused but it was a stone,we laughed.while i was looking around seen Chestnut-bellied Sandgrouse female and we moved there in our car,even we made circle around this Chestnut-bellied Sandgrouse in our car.from some distance we stopped n came out,started crawling towards it.while we approached to close n closure we stopped coz there was a male too...what a strange coz its so camouflage n our car might passed very close to this male n it didn't fly away.
Tomorrow i will post male and female close shot in one frame with video.
