Images from the 2020 post Uttarayan Kite Festival…. however I am not going to fill this page full of injured or amputated wings and feet, but rather give you a flavour of the variety of Species treated whilst I was there …
Thousands of pigeons are injured and maimed each year …
These are some of the ‘Lucky’ Kites….. that are on the way to recovery and are awaiting re-release
But it is not just pigeons and kites that become entangled – no species of bird, from big to small, are immune from the danger ….
Painted Stocks and Flamingos
Booted Eagle and Barn Owls
Pelican and Ibis
Fruit Bats … this little guy had string right round his neck and a broken wing !!
Comb Duck and Ruddy Duck
The most beautiful Peacock …. !!
Peregrine Falcon and lots more Ibis
…. Absolute Bliss
On the road to recovery – the Pelican’s first dip post surgery
Followed by a bit of a preen ….
Apologies, this page to be completed shortly ….
