Remarks :On that day we saw around 7 MacQueen's bustard in little rann of Kutch. They are very shy birds. It’s difficult to photograph them. When they see the vehicle coming towards them even from 200 m away they start fast walking and flying low and seat in bushes. Their color merge so much with the color of land so once you change of sight from them and you lost them.- PM
