BIRDS OF GOA: APRIL'15 - PART 6

INDIAN KOEL

I clicked this male Indian Koel as I was coming out of the Hanuman Temple at Housing Board, Porvorim. The fiery red eyes and the balck coat against the backdrop of the clear blue sky is pleasing. The females of this species who are notorious for laying their eggs in a crow's nest are polka dotted and are more elusive to find.

Click on the below snaps to see them in better quality.
