This is the start of a new series on my blog. It is called the Bird of the Day #BOTD and one picture of a bird from around the world will be posted here on www.abhishekbehl.net and shared with my network on twitter, google + and facebook accounts.
Today’s Bird of the Day #BOTD is the Small Indian Pratincole (Glareola lactea) taken by Sumant Rajguru on the 27th of Jan 2015 in Mundali (Mahanadi Basin) Cuttack, Odisha India.
