Sharad Agrawal, co- member, ‘The Talon’ informed, “In the photographs displayed, most of the birds can be found only in Udaipur and also the seasonal immigrant birds. Some of these are on the verge of extinction. I had this passion for wild life since childhood and have gone through many books on photography in the past 20 years”.
He described features of a few birds, through his vast experience.
The White Wing Tit – One of the most beautiful birds, which is just around 1500 in head count; is found in Udaipur and its nearby areas.
The Indian Pitta – This Indian bird carries nine different colours on its body, hence is commonly referred as the Navranga.
The Black Necked Stork – These are also the species suffering from the threat of being extinct, with a head count of around 1000. Majorly of its nesting is observed in Bharatpur Wild Life Sanctuary but now one can also see them in the other southern parts of Rajasthan like Udaipur and Chittor.
Apart from photographs by the founder members of ‘The Talon’, 22 members of the club also displayed their works. There are 50 members in the club who will soon start their wild life expeditions.
Membership for this wild life photography club is open for all above 18 years with personal cameras and interest in wild life.
