Common Birds of Srinagar Kashmir

Birding is not my  main activity while traveling in Kashmir. Just a casual observation, and with only wide angle lenses . (17-40mm f4 and 24-70mm f4 Canon lenses).

Here are the common birds around Srinagar town and garden.

Gagak- Jungle Crow foraging in a flowering apple tree.

Tiung – Common Myna

My first lifers was found at the Dal Lake in front if our houseboat – Hooded Crow

Second lifers in the Srinagar Botanical  Garden – Eurasian Jackdaw

Lifer No. 3:  Black Kite

Lifers No 4: Itik –  Little Grebe

Lifers No 5: Common Moorhen

House Sparrow

Lifer No. 6: Tern

I arrived at the Hazratbal Mosque a few minutes before maghrib /sunset, so all the noisy pigeons are already roosted on  the Chinar trees outside the mosque. .
