Dera Amer Elephant Safari is also for the Birds
Our elephant ride ended near an open air dining pavilion where we were served a buffet luncheon. The presence of food at the edge of a forest attracted many feathered friends to the feast. Some brazenly walked along the serving tables and others looked for morsels among the bussed dishes.
We saw some interesting birds, including a cuckoo shrike, a loggerhead shrike, a red-vented bulbul, and a rufous treepie.
