Continuing from where I left off let me share the next part of my journey with you guys again. I apologize for a long post in advance, this part of TR has more pictures (if someone minds them that is). It took me sometime to write due to mundane things like work emergencies etc, but I got there. The trip report can be found at:

@@xnegvx I have thoroughly enjoyed your Goa chapters - never thought of Goa as a wildlife destination but I can see an impressive line-up of sunbirds, kingfishers, barbets and the trogon. The river Zuari looks very peaceful and full of birding potential.

 

Looking forward to your next post when you have time.

Thank you @@Treepol . Even I did not consider Goa till I started reading about the amazing bio-diversity in western ghats. It indeed opened up my eyes towards the other side of Goa. River Zuari is indeed a must if one is birding in goa. Given a chance, I will cruise on that river without a seocnd thought.

 

Writing about Ganeshgudi is taking a bit of time as I have to sort through my picture sets and manage work emergencies as well. Hopefully in a couple of days the trip report can be up. :-)

 

Cheers,

Kartik

Hi @@KasperW ,

 

Thank you for the kind words. I currently use a 7D with 500mm(with 1.4x quite often), 100-400mm (with a borrowed 5d2 at times) & 70-200 f/4. For wide angle I prefer 17-40 or more likely my cell phone (which provides quite decent results for me).

 

Cheers

Hi @@xnegvx

 

And thanks, so all the pics of the small birds are with the 500mm (maybe with the 1.4e). No way around it if you want that IQ - I guess!

Thats correct @@KasperW, all birds are with 500mm at least ( most of them with 1.4x). Only way around would be to be able to creep closer to them. Unfortunately my fieldcraft leaves a lot to be desired :( .
