What a month it has been, with the travel to Bardiya taking the highlight of the year. I traveled to Bardiya for the Wildlife Conservation Photography mentored by the amazing ILCP photographer Mr. Balan Madhavan which was organized by Roar for Conservation.

Bardiya, specifically Bardiya National Park totally amazed me and I will be writing about it on a separate date to share my experience but for now, to summarize the most amazing 5 days in the national park, I was able to see a lot of flora and fauna.

In this trip I was able to document a lot of species for this blog like Oriental Pied Hornbill, Ruddy Shelduck, Black-hooded Oriole, Grey-headed Fish Eagle, Grey Heron, Blue-tailed Bee-eater, Strok-billed Kingfisher, One-horned Rhinoceros, Red-wattled Lapwing, Changeable Hawk Eagle, Green Bee-eater, Black Stork, Rose-ringed Parakeet, Pied  Kingfisher, Indian Roller, Common Kingfisher, Emerald Dove, Asian Pied Starling, Red-whiskered Bulbul, Plum-headed Parakeet, Chital, Hog deer, Terai Grey Langur, Rhesus Macaque, Asian Wild Elephant, Mugar Crocodile, Swamp deer, etc. Insects like frogs, damselflies, lizards, ants, beetles, and floras like Sal, Silk-Cotton-Tree, and many more.

I was really bummed about not being able to take proper pictures of Smooth-coated Otter, fox, royal Bengal tiger, Gangetic Dolphins, common leopard, barking deer, etc but I will be back and I’m sure I will be able to take proper shots in the future.

Hoping to have another awesome month in April as there is a couple of assignment and project that require traveling to the western part of Nepal.

Thank you again for supporting the blog and I would like to welcome the new viewers into the family.
