Bharal the "Blue Sheep" from Sikkim. On the way to Gurudongmar Lake from Lachen, at around 5000 mt above the sea level; saw these animals. They merge with the background excellently and thus are hard to see; but some males were fighting and that's why we could spot them. Females were nicely enjoying the warmth of sun, but males had something else on their mind.

The main identification character is the reddish-orange tail with black tip. This was an amazing sighting of this elusive animal.

Sarus Cranes from Navegaon NP. The one with a Brownish orange head is a Sub-adult. These are amazing birds, but the habitat in which they live is heavily modified, even the eggs are stolen as they are believed to have some So called "Medicinal properties". The future of these cranes is really uncertain in this area.
