The oriental magpie-robin is considered as the national bird of Bangladesh.

Oriental magpie-robin (Copsychus saularis) 

Tamil Name-வண்ணாத்திக்குருவி,குண்டுக்கரிச்சான்

Bengali Name-Doyel or Doel

The Oriental magpie-robin (Copsychus saularis) is a small passerine bird that was formerly classed as a member of the thrush family Turdidae, but now considered an Old World flycatcher. They are distinctive black and white birds with a long tail that is held upright as they forage on the ground or perch conspicuously. Occurring across most of the Indian subcontinent and parts of Southeast Asia, they are common birds in urban gardens as well as forests. They are particularly well known for their songs .

Males sing from high perches during courtship. The display of the male involves puffing up the feathers, raising the bill, fanning the tail and strutting.They nest in tree hollows or niches in walls or building, often adopting nest boxes.

India
Congo or African Grey Parrot(Psittacus erithacus)

Grey parrots, commonly called African greys, are native to rainforests of central Africa, ranging in a band across the continent from Côte d’Ivoire to western Kenya. The largest parrot in Africa, this species has silver feathers, a white mask, and a bright, reddish tail. Males and females are very similar in appearance.

Their colors may be less stunning than other parrots, but African grays are bright in other ways: They’re among the smartest birds in the world and the greatest mimic of human speech among the 350 or so known parrot species. Research has shown that the birds possess cognitive skills equal to that of a five-year-old child. They will also help members of their species, even complete strangers, without expecting their altruism to be reciprocated.

The monogamous parrots, which mate for life, begin searching for mates between three and five years of age. 

Because of their intelligence and ability to mimic human speech, African grays are the most popular pet bird in the world. The birds breed well in captivity, and at least 1.3 million gray parrots that have been exported legally from Africa over the past four decades, particularly to countries in the Middle East. In 2018, the bird was listed as endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

Male -Indian golden oriole (Oriolus kundoo) shot at my backyard.

Tamil name- மாங்குயில்

The Indian golden oriole (Oriolus kundoo) is a species of oriole found in the Indian subcontinent and Central Asia. The species was formerly considered to be a subspecies of the Eurasian golden oriole, but is now considered a full species. Adults can be told apart from the Eurasian golden oriole by the black of the eye stripe extending behind the eye.

This oriole breeds from Baluchistan and Afghanistan along the Himalayas to Nepal. Some populations breed in the peninsular region but are very local. The northern populations winter in southern India, with some birds wintering in Sri Lanka. The populations that occur in the Maldives and the Andaman Islands have not been carefully examined.

The Indian golden oriole inhabits a range of habitats including open deciduous forests, semi-evergreen forests, woodland, forest edge, mangroves, open country with scattered trees, parks, gardens orchards and plantations.

Orioles feed on fruits, nectar and insects.They are capable of dispersing the seeds of many berry-bearing plants including the invasive Lantana camara. An oriole has been recorded preying on southern flying lizards.

Tamil Nadu
Breeding Male Purple Sunbird(Cinnyris asiaticus)

Tamil Name-ஊதாத் தேன்சிட்டு

Shot on @nikonindiaofficial
300mm  f6.3  1/100s  ISO200

The purple sunbird (Cinnyris asiaticus) is a small bird in the sunbird family found mainly in South and Southeast Asia but extending west into parts of the Arabian peninsula. They feed mainly on nectar, although they will also take insects, especially when feeding young. They have a fast and direct flight and can take nectar by hovering like a hummingbird but often perch at the base of flowers.

Come spring, March or April, breeding season begins, and you’ll see the plumage of the males transform into a beautiful dark purple with a metallic purplish-to green-blue head, mantle, and breast — which can sometimes have a maroon shine. It’ll turn back to its original colour approximately by June, once the breeding season ends, with blackish-blue upperparts and yellow underparts, a metallic blue shoulder patch with a glossy bluish-black central band running down from the throat till abdomen.

These birds are very vociferous and will call and will join to mob owls or other predators. The song is rapid rattle followed by ringing, metallic notes. 

In courtship displays the male raises his head, fans his tail and flutters with partly open wings that expose the pectoral tufts and sings before the female.

Red-vented bulbul (Pycnonotus cafer)

Tamil Name-சின்னான் (செம்புழைக் கொண்டைக்குருவி)

The red-vented bulbul (Pycnonotus cafer) is a member of the bulbul family of passerines. It is a resident breeder across the Indian subcontinent, including Sri Lanka extending east to Burma and parts of Tibet. It has been introduced in many other parts of the world and has established itself in the wild on several Pacific islands including Fiji, Samoa, Tonga and Hawaii. It has also established itself in parts of the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, the United States and Argentina.

In the state of Assam of India, the Bulbul  bird as it is known in Assamese, the male birds were held captive for a few days and were engaged in fights as a spectator sport in the Bihu festival during the Ahom rule.

This bird is popular in internet meme culture referencing the popular online multiplayer game Among Us, in which it is commonly used due to the phrase "Red Vented," which is used in the game to indicate an imposter using a network of underground tunnels to navigate the map.

One of the best way to cover the Araku valley is by going there by Train. This train line is built specially to carry iron ore to Visakhapatnam port from the mineral reserves of Chhattisgarh state. Iron ores fines transported from mines at Bailadila through this train line to Visakhapatnam port for export and for consumption of Visakhapatnam steel plant. In India most of the hill trains run in a meter gauge or narrow gauge lines but this is a broad gauge line passes through Shimiliaguda station which is the highest broad gauge station of India at 996.32 mt above MSL. There is a board at the platform with details of height and saying about the specialty of this station.

This train line passes through 84 bridges and 58 tunnels. This broad gauge electrified line starts from Kothavalasa, a small station located between Vizianagaram and Visakhapatnam stations of Howrah and Chennai main line . From Kothavalasa the line takes a left turn ( if you are coming from Visakhapatnam towards Vizianagaram - Howrah ) and connects Kirandul station at the other end. So this line is popularly known as Kothavalasa Kirandul line or KK train line. Train line passes through Koraput, Jeypore ( in Orissa ) and Jagdalpur ( Chhattisgarh state )

After crossing two small stations , the train starts climbing up the hills through tunnels and bridges. Most of the time valley falls in right side of the train while going towards Araku from Vizag and waterfalls remain at left side. On the way small and big water falls can be seen from the train. The green valley and river combination gives a spectacular view from the train. The train passes through tunnels and bridges on its journey. After CHIMIDIPALLI station the waterfall comes at left side just after a tunnel. The longest tunnel is 520 meter long.

World’s strongest Insect DUNG BEETLE
There are three main types of dung beetle – rollers, tunnellers and dwellers – each named for the way the way the beetles use the poop they find. Rollers shape dung into balls and roll them away from the pile. They then burry the ball to either munch on later or to use as a place to lay their eggs. Tunnellers dive into the dung pile, usually working in a ‘male-female’ pair, and dig a tunnel beneath it. The female beetle then stays in the tunnel sorting out the dung brought down by the male. Dwellers, on the other hand, simply live inside the pooey pile. Female dwellers lay their eggs there, and when the larvae (or young) hatch they happily munch away on the food that surrounds them. Nom nom nom!

So, why would a insect want to eat poo? It’s an interesting question, eh? Well, when an animal (such as an elephant, cow or rhino) munches on some tasty grub, there are always parts of the food that pass through its body undigested, and end up in its dung. Its these nutritious bits of undigested food that dung beetles tuck into. Larvae eat the solid poop, while the adult beetles generally suck up the nutritious moisture found inside the dung.

These cool critters may be small, but boy are they are they mighty! In fact, in relation to its size the dung beetle is not only the world’s strongest insect – it’s the world’s strongest animal! When moving balls of dung, a roller can pull a whopping 1,141 times its own bodyweight – that’s the same as a human dragging six full double-decker busses along a road! Male dung beetles also use their colossal strength to fight, locking horns to push and pull rivals out of the way when they’re grappling for a female’s attention. Wow!

Male dung beetles also use their colossal strength to fight, locking horns to push and pull rivals out of the way when they’re grappling for a female’s attention.
