A Pleasant Surprise

Buckingham Canal

Normally you don’t associate the Buckingham Canal with anything pleasant. However, last week I was pleasantly surprised to see flocks of egrets on the trees in Indira Nagar on the banks of Buckingham Canal. What is more, some were even landing on the water hyacinths on the canal making polka dots of white on the green leaves.

Let us hope more species join and the egrets continue to stay there so that we can have another bird ‘sanctuary’ in the city.
