Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus)

Hyderabad is on the the best place for bird watching and bird photography. It has amazing wildlife across the city some famous places are Osman Sagar Lake, Hussain Sagar Lake, Sanjeevaiah Park and many more. Seeing some of my friends images from Hyderabad of Peregrine Falcon gave us goosebumps. I with my two friends made a quick plan to visit Hyderabad to see the amazing bold Peregrine Falcon. We started from late evening from Bangalore and reach there by early morning.

After a small nap, we called our friends to guide the location of Osman Sagar where the bold beauty is sighted, after few 30 minutes of entering the grassland we were able to sight this beauty. Th word Bold is the perfect word for this beauty because there were almost 50+ photographers surrounded the fastest raptor and it wasn't at all disturb with their presence.


Apart from Peregrine Falcon, there were different species of Birds like.

Common Kestrel (Falco Tinnunculus), Chestnut-bellied Sandgrouse(Pterocles exustus), Spotted Owlet (Athene brama), Indian Courser (Cursorius coromandelicus), Indian Roller (Coracias benghalensis) .
