Migratory Birds...and a TV Camera


Prior to visiting the villages, our guide wanted us to visit a spot where migratory birds liked (or used to) stop. We saw some sandpipers, coct ducks, stilt birds, and white herons, but were few in number. While explaining the reason, an army helicopter swarmed overhead, followed by another a couple of minutes later. Indeed, it was understandable why the birds were disturbed with all that noise. While we were discussing this, a truck pulled up and out piled out a reporter and camera crew from a local TV station. The microphone thrust at us, I was asked to give our opinion the wildlife situation before us. Hoping it was the right thing to say, I expressed my opinion on what saw and suggested that perhaps the army could find a different place to practice their flight tests. This is the third time I’ve been on TV while traveling in India!
