Birding at Ganeshgudi : February 2020

We are regular visitors to Ganeshgudi, a small village in Dandeli Forests in Karnataka. Our favourite resort here is Old Magazine House run by junglelodges.com. If you love watching birds then this is the place to be. The naturalist here has created bird baths within the campus which attracts forest birds of various species. Recently we visited this place with our friends Renu and Dimpy in third week of February 2020.

Sharing few photos taken during the visit. All pictures were shot with Olympus OMD EM1 MK 2 with 300 mm f4 lens + MC14 tele extender.Enjoy.

Few words of Caution. Old Magazine House is a unique place where you can do arm chair birding. Do not expect the same in other birding hot spots. Have Fun !!!
