I haven't had much time for birding recently; I've been preparing for a business trip to India and Sri Lanka. Of course, I'm hoping to see some birds there that I've never seen before, such as the Common Hoopoe. (This illustration is from the field guide, Birds of India by Grimmett and Inskipp.) I probably won't see one in the cities I visit, but maybe from the train on the way to Pune. I'll be the guy with the sore neck from trying to look out both sides of the car at the same time.
