Wildlife Calendar: This year in the wild

Butterflies

image57

Winter  is not really the season butterflies like and that is why there is a marked  scarcity of butterflies. However, Common Rose is around to lay eggs. Zebra Blues,  Pea and Gram Blues are seen flitting on low bushes. More than adults, one could find caterpillars now. Among the Meswak bushes Small Salmon Arabs will never disappoint you if you are near mangroves. 

Wildflowers

image58

Now the Purple Bauhinia has taken over the winter treescape along the roads. And  while most trees are still bare and flowerless, Red Silk Cotton is now crowded with nectar seeking birds and squirrels squabbling over the canopy.  Scholar's Tree fills up the evening air with its sweet fragrance to invite the pollinators of the night.  The Firebush too is now about to burst in its flaming flowers all along the outskirts. 

Birds

image59

Seashores are now filled up with busy birds who have travelled from distant lands to feel at home on our shores. Flamingos too love to spend their winter along the Navi Mumbai, Mumbai and Thane shores.  However, the locals like Ashy Prinias, Tailor birds, Indian robins and bulbuls have begun to prepare a farewell song for the winter.
