Matthaei Botanical Gardens
Cathy Theisen takes us along on a photo journey from southern India's Nagarhole National Park north to Binsar Forest Reserve, near the Nepali border. In the hot dry season just before the monsoons arrive, predator and prey mix together along any river or waterhole edge, allowing for extended sightings and behavioral study. Bengal tigers, Hornbills, Asian Elephants, Treepies, Minivets, Fantails, Barbets, Laughingthrushes, and Painted Spurfowl are just some of the myriad species spread across this fantastic landscape. From lush green deciduous forest in the south, to rugged, arid landscapes in the northwest, to the mystical ancient rhododendron forests of the Himalayan foothills, this tour covers it all.
