Spring is here and the birds are busy flying back and forth with material for their nests. The greenfinch are building their nests in our green “wall” behind our green house. I guess the green suites the greenfinch. But why is it called a greenfinch? The male is all yellow.

we where so lucky while out in the desert… on our way out of the dunes this guy comes driving by with a falcon in his hand….what are the odds ?
such beautiful birds…
look at those claws
he had another one sitting in the front seat…one female and one male…do you know which is which ?
desert, dunes, sunset and top it of with some falcons with it’s trainer…lucky us !
my friend Kathy in action getting some fabulous pictures.. so the falcons are trained for hunting…each one worth a great deal of money…
look at those feathers….wow ! such beautiful pattern
you could tell how happy he was for these birds…and we where happy that we got the chance to meet them up close.
oh, guess I have to let you know that the big one is the female, small one male.
ps.did anyone of you read the article about the Sheik who booked a whole plane for his 80 falcons ?

The other day I was in much need of positive energy and at our other home I get that from nature so I decided to try the same here, so off I went to Sultanpur National park which is about a 40 minute drive from our home here in Gurgaon.
it sure is a different world out here
Blue cows, nilgais, India’s biggest antelope looking at me the same way many look at me here in India !
see what a face he did !!
a newly born nilgai…soooo cute
the tiniest of sparrows….
see the big bird ?
love their socks
a two hour walk did give me some positive energy, some good pictures and some good exercise…not bad at all…
I do recommend to get to the park early, meaning when they open at 9. Bring some coffee and enjoy.
