Beautiful pics Neil ji. I always like to see plants and birds or animals together
Is the bird Shrike what we call "Saatbhai" as they are usually in groups of seven and I have not only heard but seen that 1 of them is always guarding in turns. I see a lot of these birds around my house at Pune

Hi,
 The 'Rufous-backed' Long-tailed Shrike featured here belongs to a group called 'Butcher-birds'. 'Satbhai' or 'Seven Sisters' are Jungle Babblers. Sending you a few photographs.
                  With regards,
                    Neil Soares.

Yes Neil sir...Wonderful Pics.

Bhagyashri Ji, Yes we see shrikes but not as commonly as babblers In Pune.

We locally call them- Pachanak , Kajala latora  ( In north India )
                               Chashmewala , Jangli Khatik  ( In West India ).

I hope Chashmewala rings a bell for U.
 
And  this discussion gave me one crazy idea of having one "e-fauna india" forum one day.

Neil : Somewhere I read that (may be flickers) that these flowers are
eaten in Maharashtra and so populations of this plant have dwindled...
how eat them and why? any religious or nutritional reason?

cant it be farmed?
propagated?

Very nice Neil ji
A beautiful Asclepiadaceae member. I don't know whether can be seen in wild now?
Its good that people like you have maintained these private biodiversity areas.

Hi,
 Pravin Kawale was with me at Shahapur when we found one of these flowering in the wild. From him I learnt that the central part of the flower [that looks like a pointed crayon] can be eaten and it is very sweet.
                     With regards,
                       Neil Soares.
