Hi Friendscriber

Exams are over! I finally now have the time to catch up with all my work
piling on. I?ve just got my bike painted, and with a new seat it looks pretty
darn good.

The Sanctuary ABN-AMBRO Award money covered the costs.Have a look below


Secondly; just this week the Other India Bookstore has received Romulus
Whitaker and Ashok Captain?s book on Snakes of India. The book has some
fabulous photographs; you have to see it to believe it. I am simply going
around telling people that it is a book to die for!

At rupees 2700 it is pretty expensive though. If you?d like to order a copy
drop me a mail at cna at sancharnet.in

I might even be able to work a small discount for you.

I am also taking this opportunity to advertise my own two books; Free From
School and The Call of the Snake. If you didn?t know about them here?s a small
note

The first book is about my quitting school to travel around India. I learnt
snake handling during this time at the Pune Snake Park and the Madras
Crocodile Bank. Also studied spiders, worked on earthworms etc.

The second book is about my snake handling experiences in Goa. All my bizarre
experiences along with information on snake myths, first aid etc are included
in this book.

Again, should you choose to order one of them you could drop me a mail. The
books are priced at 100 and 110 rupees. Free From School is almost sold out.

If you delay you will have to wait for the reprint. (which should be out
shortly)

If you don?t have the money then you can download Free From School from my
website for free!

Stay tuned also for a lot of nature trips I will be organizing the coming
months. In coordination with other wildlife enthusiasts Nitin, Sweta, etc. I
will be organizing birding trips, field trips to observe sea life, treks and
hopefully even 'gettaway' biking tours!

I know we've missed reptiles in the last two issues, but by next issue I
should have something back again on herps.

Column>> Know your Birds

Watching this bird picking up crickets, locusts and small insects from ground
is delight.

You can spot this bold little fella more on ground looking for food than in
air. He is your common Hoopoe ( Upupa epops
scientific Gibberish), very easy
to identify due its zebra markings on wings and never to forget the crest




which is fanned open when he is in aggressive mood. You will find these birds
solitary or scattered in pairs. Feeds on insects caught on ground or pulled
from underground

always busy doing his work, has pleasant mellow hoo
po
po
calls
mostly in breeding season More sightings are in meadows, open country
in winter.

I have spotted this bird in open spaces opposite Soccoro grampanchyat and
near pomburpa ..on the way to Mayem lake
