I had to walk
almost 4-5kms behind the bird to get this picture. It was one awesome
experience to walk in the desert area and when the bird obliged for few
clicks it was worth all the effort.
The hobby is a
passage migrant in India and is also a summer breeding visitor to the
Himalaya. This small 33cm falcon is a skilled hunter and aerial acrobat.
