2015 Update : A guest did some excellent birding around our place at Chettimani. Click on that for a report, list of species spotted and some lovely pictures.
Its a lovely season in Coorg for birdwatching, and if you’ve always been curious about that, and want to step into their fascinating world, take a vacation the coming weekend – the 26th and 27th of Feb.
We’ve asked Adarsh Raju, a birdwatching enthusiast and a darned good amateur wildlife photographer to help introduce folks to birding. He’ll share the whats/hows of this hobby, to start with, and then follow it up with 3 sessions “out there” spotting, identifying and understanding various species found in the area (its over 200, we’ve been told!)
If you’re keen, turn up on Fri eve/Sat morning, and start back on Sun evening. The overnight bus on Fri will get you there by 6:30am or so. The return Volvo is at 11, and there’s even a Rajahamsa straight from/to Bhagamandala which gets you directly to the bus stop near Linger. For bus reservations, use this link.
The entire trip will be priced at 1750/- per person starting from coffee as you arrive on Sat morning to snacks or even an early dinner as you take the bus into Madikeri from Linger around 7pm on Sunday. All meals, use of the library, the birding activity, bonfires, unlimited tea/coffee all day, use of hammocks, use of the bikes there are included.
We can accommodate 12 people quite comfortably, and acco will be on a shared basis in the 3 cottages. We should be able to accommodate 10 people.
Do get a light jacket, a good camera and decent walking shoes/sandals along for the trip. Also be prepared to wake up early and head out to catch the early birds 🙂
