That bird made my day special. It is very rare in our region (eastern India). Basically it is the bird of south India. I was taking photos of Kentish Plover on the river bed. Suddenly all the little birds fly away to see this raptor hovering over them. I was quite nervous to see this predator at just 20 m away. But I slowly moved towards him to capture this beauty. Avoiding me, he was busy to hunt little Plovers.
