Peacocks, Birdwatching for Urban birds in Lucknow, India

peahens india (1)

I clicked this picture from my balcony in Lucknow, last winter. Peacocks and peahens don’t mind our home in the dense green surroundings. They sit on my rooftop at times, and even come to feed on the roti served for birds that are more frequent in visiting my balcony: warblers, babblers, mynas,the lone coucal, pairs of pink flecked doves and crows.

In this picture the peahens and peacocks are sitting on a neem tree, laden with the Giloi (Amruth, Guduchi) climber.

I feel so lucky that Peacock, the National Bird of India, lives so close to me.

Kabir Nirgun song by Malini Awasthi with lyrics, Jara Dheere Gaadi Haanko More Ram

जरा धीरे धीरे गाड़ी हांको मोरे राम गाड़ीवाले, जरा हल्के गाड़ी हांको मोरे राम गाड़ीवाले

या गाड़ी म्हारी रंग रंगीली, पहिया लाल गुलाल

फागुन वालो छैल छबीलो और बैठन वाले दाम

जरा हल्के गाड़ी हांको मोरे राम गाड़ीवाले

देस देस का वैद बुलाया, लाया जड़ी और बूटी

जड़ी़ और बूटी कुछ काम ना आई, जब राम के घर टूटी

चार कहार मिलि उठायो, दु‍ई काठ की जोड़ी

ल‍ई जा मरघट पे रख दई और फूंक दी‍ए जस होली

जरा हल्के गाड़ी हांको मोरे राम गाड़ीवाले

The poem is written by Saint Kabir who was born in Varanasi.

अरे रामा सावन मा घनघोर बदरिया छाई रे हारी

घन उमड़ घुमड़ के छाये, उत कजारे घन छाये रे रामा

अरे रामा झींगुर की छनकारि, पिया को लागे प्यारी रे हारी

झूला पड़ा कदम की डारि, झूलें ब्रिज के नर नारि

अरे रामा पेंग बढ़ावे राधा प्यारी, पिया को लागे प्यारी रे हारी

अरे रामा सावन मा घनघोर बदरिया छाई रे हारी

बदरिया छाई रे हारी
