Around 5.30am came out from my hotel room and went towards beach to click birds.after walking of 1+km i saw 3-4 birds flying high above me n innocently clicked 4shots.i knew shots were not good coz they are much higher n moved ahead.got nothing n retured around at 8am as we have to check out.
after returning home transferred pics to desktop,i was looking new species n shocked coz i am lucky to frame this bird coz i think it is sighted only during flying http://orientalbirdimages.org/search.php?keyword=Brown-backed+Needletail. Obi has only 35 images of this bird and i am 36th all over and 10th from india.
Brown-backed Needletail is a large swift.
These birds have very short legs which they use only mainly for clinging to vertical surfaces. They never settle voluntarily on the ground and spend most of their lives in the air, living on the insects they catch in their beaks.
These swifts are resident breeders in hill forests in southern Asia from India east to Indonesia and the Philippines.
They build their nests in rock crevices in cliffs, laying 3-5 eggs. The flight is impressively fast, even compared to other swifts.
The Brown-backed Needletail is a very large swift, and at 23-25 cm,123–167 g.
