The story of a crested serpent eagle and the indian roller in Kabini

Was rummaging through my hard disk this morning and I found myself looking at a trip I had made with my parents three years ago to Kabini. Found this photograph of the crested serpent eagle.


The indian roller and the black drongo would not let it perch quietly though and they chased the raptor away.


Ironically I made three trips to Kabini that year and now, I havent been there for three years..Note to self - Go in 2012.

This seems to be the ornithologist's paradise with such a variety of birds available to be watched. Would really love to be in this part of the world.

I have two questions: Why is it called a serpent eagle? How do smaller birds like drongo/roller get to chase away a large more powerful bird?

Kabini sure looks like a wonderful place to immerse in nature for a real traveler! It's on my list now.
