Second Outing with the RTP Group (21-June-2014)
Location: Osman Sagar Lake and Gandipet Park
Sighting: 22 different species

Every time I go out for a bird outing in-and-around Hyderabad, I'm always pleasantly surprised with the variety of Birds. This time it was no different. A note of thanks goes to Akshay, Rahul and Ajith for joining from RTP. Also a note of thanks goes to the Photography Equipment without which capturing this beauty wouldn't have been possible.
