Nandi Hills, Bangalore

Nandi Hills, fondly known as Nandi Betta is one of my favorite places to go birding in Bangalore. Just off National Highway-7, Nandi hills is a paradise for birdwatchers. The hill is ~1400m above sea level and is home to a wide variety of plants and rich in birdlife. Expect to find a variety of flycatchers including Verditer, Tickell’s Blue & Asian Paradise Flycatcher.  My favorite however, is the Indian Blue Robin- Exceptionally shy but worth the wait! And while you are there, grab a plate of Maggi Noodles and a hot cup of coffee!
