Chatty Indian Rufous Treepie at Ranthambore
Renowned for its tigers, Ranthambore National Park, India has spectacular birds as well. Bold, beautiful and friendly, this magnificent bird, a rufous treepie came over to chat with us while we had stopped by one of the 3 lakes to photograph the jungle scenery. The local call them pipers.
Photographer (and reader) Naomi Morton who was on safari with us turned the camera to get a shot of herself with the bird, who promptly obliged by giving her a full wing span.
