I visited Ranthambore National Park, Rajasthan for the first time recently along with my friends from Udaipur. Ranthambore National Park is majorly famous for its tigers and relatively easy sighting of the biggest cat. But, it is also home for 270 species of birds.

While, this trip was not specifically for Birding At Ranthambore National Park, still, during my three Tiger Safari on 7th and 8th June 2013, I could see many birds including beautiful Indian Pitta, Painted Stork, Painted Sandgrouse.
