As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Golden Eagle spotted at Desert National Park

JAISALMER: There's good news for bird watchers and wildlife enthusiasts. The Golden Eagle, generally found in the Himalayan region, for the first time has been spotted at the Desert National Park (DNP).

Generally found in cold regions, spotting these birds in the desert is surprising. Devendra Bhardwaj, deputy director, DNP, said "two Golden Eagles were spotted in D block of Sudasari enclosure in the park".

He said possibly these birds must have forgotten their track and come here. The plumage of the birds show they are juvenile, Bhardwaj added.
