Painted Stork at Kokrebellur

Via Flickr:
Coming back from my study break - first steps. Hello Flickr friends!

From Wikipedia: Kokkrebellur is not a reserved forest sanctuary but is a small village where the storks and pelicans coexist freely, mostly in tamarind trees in the middle of the village, in total harmony with the villagers. Consequently, reports indicate increased nestling activity in recent years. Thus, efforts to conserve these birds have been fruitful and hailed as a “role model” for replication at other places.
