Mumbai is a city with largest population in India. Its one of the richest coutries in India. A lot happens here everyday, every year, but does anyone bother to look around and find out which birds live with us in the huge human dominated eco-system? I guess not many. Many of us only know sparrows, crows, pigeons and parrots! But Mumbai harbors more than 40 species of birds. Some of them are displayed below, while some are not. This page is entirely dedicated to photographs that I have taken while birding in Mumbai. Go ahead and checkout the Birds Of Mumbai!
UPDATE: I have included interesting images of the Indian Golden Oriole which I spotted here in urban areas on Mumbai in a warm afternoon of January. I spotted this bird for the very first time in Mumbai although it has been spotted quite a few times in Pune.
I also spotted a few egrets on my trip outside Mumbai to Kelwa Beach. Which is not very far away but a very good place to escape from the environmental pollution for a day. Also spotted a few plovers there. Could not get a very close shot because they flew away as I tried to go near them.
Enjoy the pictures!
And thats the end! I will be putting up more images of different birds whenever I will spot them. Do not forget to like this page and share it with your friends! After all, these birds are with whom we live in the mega city, unknowingly! Some unlisted birds are Common Tailor bird, purple rumped humming bird (Male), Jungle Crow, Kites. The phorographs for the unlisted birds are coming soon!
