First time flower showJ.
I have heard about this event so many times that I dint want to miss it this
time. An additional bonus was the fact that “the geek gardener” shop was
demonstrating some hydroponics and selling gardening material at the premises.
So gardening +bird watching pulled us to this place on Saturday morning.
We did notice some new birds (from our perspective J).
I got an invite to attend the Earthian function at Wipro.
Earthian is an educational and sustainability initiative by Wipro that promotes
green thinking at schools and colleges
across India. This is done through a competition that involves activities and
paper presentations based on sustainability theme.
Visited RT first time with a keen interest on birds. Our Kumarakom trip had aroused curiosity and interest about birds.
We reached near the sanctuary at about 9 am. As we took the right turn from the main Mysore road towards the sanctuary we heard some peacock calls. Curious to see them, we alighted from the car and walked towards the filed in the direction of the calls. This is what we saw!
This write-up is more for us to remember what we did in Kumarakom. Otherwise, we forget in a few weeks how exactly we spent our time travelling and if it was worth it.
It also gives some details about our stay and the people we met - for house boats and bird watching.
