Birding at Goa

Been to Goa 4 times so far but never tried birding. When I was working in Pune a close friend planned a Birding trip to Goa and I joined him. We covered Bondla Wildlife Sanctuary and Bhagwan Mahaveer Sanctuary over 3 days.

We stayed at Farmgudi Residency at Ponda. After reaching Goa hired a Scooter and then headed to Ponda. Farmgudi was very good place, I spend my evening shooting at Farmgudi premise.
