It is a long week end again.
Birding time at Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary, near Gurgaon.
Location :
Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary is about 25 km from my house in Gurgaon.  http://www.sultanpurbirdsanctuary.com/

Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary is a very popular national park of India. located in Sultanpur village, Farukhnagar,Gurugram district in Haryana State. Sultanpur village is located 40 km from Dhaula Kuan in Delhi and 15 km from old Gurugram city on the Gurugram – Jhajhar highway. This Bird Sanctuary, ideal for birding and bird lovers, is best visited in winters when a large number of migratory birds come here.

Best Time to visit :  Dec to Feb.  
It closes from June to September.
With winter approaching the birds also start visiting.
Plenty of water birds.
You can find many other birds too in different times of the year. However you will find maximum birds during winter time.
This is Purple Heron standing atop for long. It did not move for few hours.
Flamingo seemingly in conversation with a coot.

Sad part is that this flamingo does not have left wing, or partially cut. Pity.
