Spotted owlet is a small and stocky bird, barely 21 centimetres in size. This species is nocturnal but is sometimes seen in the day. When disturbed from their daytime site, they bob their head and stare at intruders.

This bird is #small (about 8โ€“9 cm long) with yellowish olive upper parts, a #white #eye ring, #yellow throat and vent.
.
.
.

These white-eyes are sociable, forming flocks which only separate on the approach of the breeding #season . They are highly arboreal and only rarely descend to the ground. Though mainly insectivorous, the Oriental white-eye will also #eat nectar and #fruits of various kinds. .
.
.

Like some other white-eyes, they sometimes #steal #nest material from the nests of other #birds . At times the are found feeding the #chicks of a #paradise flycatcher. .

On our visit to Sariyon village, we met this amazing old lady. Living and giving fitness goals at an age of 95, completely #fit walking with her sticks. She was so #happy to see us, welcomed us. Our group had clicked of pictures with her, with such a little #time we spent with her, we all shared an invisible #bond and were glued to her aura. .
.
But as we left her, she was giving her blessings to us and subtle sadness is clearly visible on her #face . .

Can you spot the road going into the clouds? .
.
.

This is the beauty of hills, every minute you get to see a different landscape, whole valley is in cloud and you can see a road taking you into those clouds. .
.
.
I went to this peak inorder to capture a beautiful sunset, and when I reached top it was all clear and beautiful. As the time was getting closer to sunset  hills started getting covered by clouds and within an hour the entire valley was covered with white cover. .

"The best view are seen after the hardest climb" .

On our early morning trek to George everest. It was slippery and hard to reach the top, but when we reached, this was the mesmerising view from there. .

I wish I could have captured the panaromic view of the  the beautiful snow covered himalayan range.

No its not a painting, its a #view a minute before #sunrise . .

After the #beautiful #galaxy capture, we didn't want to #miss the mesmerising sunrise, so we packed our bags, tents and rushed towards the george everest's highest cliff. Though the #trek wasn't pleasant enough but the view after reaching the #top was #soul soothing . .

Yes, #nature rewards you with spectacular #views at anytime of the day, only thing which is required is being patience .

Being away from the city, at higher altitudes, with clear, #dark and no moon sky. You can see the galactic center of our #milkyway from naked eyes. .
.
.

We were at Geoerge everest waiting for this amazing phenomenon. But we all know #mother nature doesn't give anything so easily. 
At #midnight with no clue of direction of sighting of galactic center, temperature started dropping near to freezing point. Cold breezes making it much more worse to #work in such conditions. .

Thanks to @neeraj_11o7 @manubhatt73 @alankritkaushal  and @jayeshbhardwaj16  for coming and sitting outside whole night in those harsh condition and help me #spot the milkyway. Guys without you this shot won't be possible. .

Perched on the edge of a cliff overlooking the picturesque Doon Valley, Sir George Everest House near Mussoorie, is the most serene place to visit. Also known as 'The Park Estate', Everest House is a former home, observatory, and laboratory of the Surveyor General of India, Sir George Everest. .

.
.

The building used to be an observatory to observe the #mountains demarcating the boundaries of #British #India and measure the height of world's greatest peaks. As a #tribute to his work and contribution to the Great Trigonometric Survey of India, the world's highest mountain, then known as Peak XV, was later named as Mount Everest after Sir George Everest.
.
.
.
.

Being such a great #history of the place. Now the #building is completely neglected by the government, walls are scribbled by the people who visit the place. The house is still in well condition from inside but no one is allowed to enter inside. .

Name : Ficus spp. .
.
Look at these #beautiful branches making a #door like structure. Its a door to a #new begining and a new #life . .
.
.
.

During our birding #trail at Thano, we found this #tree admist the forest. This tree is very useful to maintain the biodiversity of #forest , every part of it is essential. Its leaves are eaten by #butterfly larva and  fruits by #birds . .
.

It gives life to so many species but its reproduction phase is also very #unique . It cant be planted, birds have to eat its fruit and when they stool then only it germinate. And alternate to that is when its branches #touch ground they get tranformed to a #new tree. .
.

And it was my first official bird watching trail and triggered my interest into #wildlife.

. "The biggest fear of yours is the fear itself"

In my recent visit to 5th Uttarakhand bird Festival, it was my very #first tent stay, No cozy bed, no temperature controllers and #far away from #city in the dense forest of Thano. 
There was continious Chirping of nocturnal birds, subtle movements of #wild animals in the #forest . And it was complete dark even the #night landscape outside the tent was not at all supporting. 
But we all know after the darkest night comes the brightest #day. As I was restless thorough out night , wanted to #follow those voices coming from the forest but due to the warning given to us I can't.  So I woke up early with my gears on and it was the most captivating scenic #view from my tent. For a time being I was mesmarised by that #beauty , those night voices were transformed to chirping of forest birds and it was one of the #best #morning from there.

Get out of your #comfort zone. Go beyond the mainstream life and #enjoy the thrill.

Its cold in Ranikhet throughtout the year. As the income is low and gas & electricity cuttoffs are high. So these women go to jungle and collect the woods to make food and keep the house warm.

People from villages are migrating to cities to #earn their livelihood. And very less #people are #left back that too of 70+ age #group . 
Among those #old aged people, this little #child living his childhood in isolation,  looking for #friends to play, #study and to create some #beautiful stories of his #childhood .

But this #baby is so much pampered by all the villagers. He is still living his childhood to the fullest. And still much #better than those migrated to #urban cities.
