Cauvery Wild Life Sanctuary---a serene scrubby forest is situated along the border of Karnataka and Tamil nadu, pretty close to Bangalore. My intention was birding, and I had to do my homework as this was my first ever visit to that place. Hence, I went through the blogs and noted few important birding spots. I realized that both Bheemeshwari and Galibore are two different places with a distance of 40kms between them. So it was obvious that I had to leave bangalore early in the morning which could fetch good birds and as well cover both places. Myself and couple of my friends left the city by 04:30 AM.
|Rufous Treepie--Kanakapura road.|
We stopped for sometime in Kanakapura highway to catch up with the sunrise, a big tree nearby had loads of Yellow billed and Jungle babblers, indian robins, whiskered bulbuls. But what caught my attention was a singing Rufous treepie. It was a beautiful call ! I also saw couple of treepie's inside CWLS.

By the time we crossed Sathanur village limits it was almost 6:30 AM, we came near a small pond where I noticed some bird activity. Adjacent to the pond was an open field which also seemed interesting. We started exploring the layout by parking the vehicle at a distance. It was a fabulous trail.
