Spot billed pelicans

This is the habitat shot of pelicans (painted stork in the background), the image made at Hoskote lake, Bangalore, India which has emerged as birding hot spot since it attracted various water birds. In recent years this important habitat is supporting about 170 + species of various birds.

Spot billed pelicans are near threatened species as per IUCN listing. The reason of their decline is the habitat loss and human disturbance. Bangalore and surroundings are blessed to have these magnificent birds. They feed on fish.
