Assorted birds from Baga, Succor Plateau and Britona in Goa photographed using a Mirror Lens

The Internet says that the salt pans at Baga are rich in bird life. No such salt pans in the winter though. A short climb up the hill north of Baga Beach exposed a Western Reef Egret busy fishing:

Rahul Alvares had told me about Succor Plateau. Whilst the plateau is rich in bird life, it ain’t the best for photography as most of the birds are high up on tall trees and swift movers. If one has decent gear, like the Canon 500mm f/2.8, and a lot of patience and a heavy tripod, one can end up with great photos. Not so with the Mirror Lens:

The Chestnut-tailed Starling or Grey-headed Myna, Sturnia malabarica

And at the village, Britona, I spotted a Common Kingfisher:
