Babbler Juvenile

Experimenting 600. At last after 14 days with the Indian Customs - the canon 600f4 was delivered yesterday evening. This is the first shot with that in my house backyard of a juvenile Jungle Babbler. The Gitzo tripod is yet not delivered so handheld. Its very difficult to shoot handheld with that gizmo. I am very happy to have invested into this. I have to find out someway to carry the big baby in aircrafts.


The Jungle Babbler, Turdoides striata, is an Old World babbler found in South Asia. They are gregarious birds that forage in small groups of six to ten birds, a habit that has given them the popular name of Seven Sisters or Saath bhai in Hindi with cognates in other regional languages which means "seven brothers".


The Jungle Babbler is a common resident breeding bird in most parts of the Indian Subcontinent and is often seen in gardens within large cities as well as in forested area
