GOKARNA DIARIES: AUG'14 - Part XIX

WIRE-TAILED SWALLOW


As we were walking through the Car Street, I found this Wire-tailed Swallow (Wiki Link) perched on a wire. Though not very clear from the picture, this lovely bird has a patch of brown on its head apart form a white underside and black feathers. Found in abundance across the country, they can be easily identified by those two wire-like threads.
