Purple Swamphen

Latest snowfall forced me to seek warmth in my photos from my India trip towards end of 2017. Though trip like this is always more a social visit, in the last two trips I made sure that I left some time to look for old world birds. This photo was taken while riding a dinghy around an Oxbow lake formed by river Ganges. Winter is definitely the best time to see many variety of migratory bird around the lake. Purbasthali, West Bengal, India
