Although this particular species of Kingfisher is rare to see but I was lucky to spot a very good numbers on the dry river beds in Rajaji National Park Uttarakhand India.
It was a weekend trip to Lansedowne and then to Rajaji National Park both in Uttarakhand with a motif to spot & click some uncommon bird species of Himalayas and on the third day we reached Rajaji National Park after 5 hours of road journey from Lansedowne in Uttarakhand.
The scenic beauty of Rajaji National Park where we stayed in a hill top resort was just mesmerising and after almost travelling 8-9 kms through dry river beds full of pebbles we reached at the resort .
We stayed there for two nights and spotted a varieties of Himalayan birds during morning and evening hours with my gear on my shoulder.
Rajaji National Park 🏞 is hardly 6 hours drive from Delhi and can be easily planned for a weekend birding trip.
