Grazing cows and Buffalo in Beautiful valley.
Most of the local people there take them during summer and then sell in winter in lower areas.

this bird is a permanent visitor of my garden.it is very shy bird and was difficult to capture but today i succeeded to capture it.other birds feel fear from it and start chirping when it appears.
