Recently I visited a place called Kokkare Bellur. The place is named after the birds.    Kokkare means  crane.    In this village different types of birds like painted stork, herons etc harbour the trees.   This place is one of the important birds sanctuaries of Karnataka.   Villagers protect the birds.     I am posting a few photos of birds on trees.     This mail is on Thespesia populnea.  Can somebody ID the birds also.
