It's all about going cuckoo over the literally bird-brained. Tag along with the birdwatchers of the city for some cheep thrills.

The Birdwatchers' Society of Andhra Pradesh is organising a bird watching trip on 20th June, to the Mrugavani National Park at Chilkur.

Located near Himayat Sagar, the Mrugavani National Park covers around 700 acres. This well-wooded area with rocky outcrops harbours chital, sambar, small mammals, an array of reptiles, and several species of birds as well.

You can spot ground birds that include peafowl, patridges and quails, and the usual suspects among the arboreal ones. The Green-Billed Malkoha is almost always seen here. Also, keep a lookout for the harbinger of the monsoon, the Pied Crested Cuckoo. There's a watch-tower to give you a vantage point over the park, and also a small museum with wildlife exhibits.

The Birdwatchers' Society Of Andhra Pradesh (BSAP) was founded as a non-governmental organisation in 1980, by a few enthusiasts with the objective of spreading the message of bird conservation. The Society has grown during the years, and now has 600 members. It organises field trips, lectures, film and slide shows, nature camps, treks, waterfowl counts, bird ringing and other activities. It is registered under the Public Societies Registration Act-I of 1350 F, and the office is located at Banjara Hills.

This will be a half-day trip, and entry is allowed only for the members of BSAP and their guests. Please contact Shafaat Ulla at 98492-29552 or Shanti Mani at 93910-08302 for registrations and further details.
