A few photographs of Indian wild birds

These are a few photographs of wild birds found in Northern India, taken at the Sultanpur bird sanctuary close to Gurgaon, Harayan, India. I used a Canon 1100D, DSLR with a 55-250 mm lens. These snaps are nearly one year old, and I hope to get a few more when I visit the bird sanctuary this year!
