Observation details

On lake near Netsi, I observed huge flocks of Chestnut-bellied Sandgrouses coming to drink water. They were approaching in group of 10 to 20 individuals, containing combination of males and females. We witnessed this phenomenal show by sitting under a tree few meters away from the lake.
