Wildlife Calendar: This year in the wild

Butterflies

October is marked as a peak month as most the butterfly diversity could be seen during this month. More than caterpillars, the adults are seen more fleeting around. Tiger butterflies are most common ones to be seen, this also time when the pansies make their appearances.

Wildflowers

Post-monsoon is best time for wildflowers to sprout on open plateaus and grasslands. This season marks with surge of bell-shaped glories. This also marks end of the monsoon season and the flowers will be gone by this month end.

Birds

The birds are more heard than seen during this season. As they prepare for the nesting season, a good amount of activity could be seen in any wooded areas. Ashy Prinias, Rufous backed shrikes, Indian robins and bulbuls dominate the scene.
