Khargar Hills Dec 2007

Started from main gate at around 7:30AM (Myself, my dad and Dr. Saurabh)
Immediately on the left there is a path going towards to top of the hill.
We went half way up.
2 shikras were calling and one shikra went flying above us 2-3 times.
We also saw purple sunbirds, ashy drongo, bulbuls and male-female Ioras.
