Beautiful World of Indian Birds (Bird Pictures and Video)

Two years back, I start taking bird photography seriously and during this time, I got completely surprised by the variation and differences in the Indian birds. We can find more than one thousand bird species in India and when you try to capture these beautiful birds with your camera, then they completely blow your mind.

I can bet that most of people have no idea about these beautiful birds and we can find so many of them in India. People are so much busy in their daily lives that they don't get a chance to witness this beauty. Mostly, people came across a dozen of the birds and they believe that this is everything. However, when we go deep into the world of birds, then we realize that it is very big and there are many species and sub-species of birds with small differences.

These birds look so brilliantly colored that it looks someone has painted them. Birds are miracles of life and they are really very important part of life. Many of these birds live very close to us; however, we hardly notice them. Moreover, we are continuously destroying their habitats to make space for humans.  Already, many bird species have disappeared from the world and many others are in danger.

The sad part of this story is that on the one side, we look for new life in the space and on the other side, we are killing the so beautiful life on the earth. We human still need to learn to live with the nature peacefully. My this article is a try to introduce you with the beautiful Indian birds.
