Beautiful Birds of Pakistan - 7

Like the undersea marine life, the bids dominate the sky above us with their abode on trees and even marshland sand heavily vegetated areas. They in fact fill the sky with their presence and eye pleasing chirping sounds - except perhaps the crow which for some is less pleasing. 
Kestrel

Birds are as small as the Humming Birds with only a 5 centimeter presence or as large as the eagles which may have sizes up to 220 centimeters - but if you wish to include the Ostriches, the lesser birds as they cannot soar to the sky and have a small flights, then we are taking of birds as large as 2.75 meters.
Greater Egrets

I have been sharing birds as watched by a number of bird watchers in Pakistan - but mostly these are small birds which are very common to places near cities or in the fields. Today it is my seventh post based on spotting and shooting skills of Mirza Naim Baig, an avid bird watcher, nature lover and of course with a sharp eye to spot a bird and shoot it - not by his gun but his camera for us to admire the Nature and its man creations.



Kingfisher is a beautiful bird known for its longer beak and rather vivid colours despite its small size of 10 centimeters to maximum of 40+ centimeters. I love this bird and intend dedicating a separate post on it in days to come. For now here some beautiful kingfishers: 
 Common Kingfisher
 A pair of Pied Kingfishers
White breasted Kingfisher

Some other birds that adorn the skies and wetlands of Pakistan are:
  Common Teals (above) and Northern Shovelers (below) spotted in Lugh Lake
 Beautiful Swamp Hen with its unique blue and red colour combination (below)
 Pallid Harrier (above) and Marsh Harrier in flight (below)
  The long legged Pond Heron
The beautiful, unique and rare Yellow footed Green Pigeon
