Hosakote Lake is the largest fresh water body in Bengaluru. It is well known among birding community. I had my deepest desire to visit this place to check out the habitat..and I was not disappointed. I witnessed probably the biggest congregation of waterfowls..!! It was a treat.

Google navigation suggested a shorter route to the lake bed, but it turned out to be difficult. I had to cross couple of gated complex. The trail which I took turned out to be the end of lake.

It was an interesting arena of birds. There were plenty of grey herons, egrets, pheasant tailed jacanas, stilts etc. Early morning sunshine had made the lake bed look lovely. It was beautiful.
