  1. I think the bird in photo #3 is a Drongo.

  2. Yes Chandan, thats a Drongo for sure! After my first visit, I realized they are quite common there.

  3. Hi, firstly - great pics!
    I was wondering if you have info about entering the byalkere sanctuary, since I heard it's a restricted area and one needs the permission of the Forest Department to go inside, though there's no info about how to take this permission!
