On way to Veer Dam, where Megha photographed me as One Man Crowd, a Shikra, not Shakira ;) caught our attention.
Shikra is a small bird of prey, of hawk category. In some parts of the world, Shikra is called Little Banded Goshawk [in fact, may be considered a sub-species]. Shikra is found almost everywhere in Africa and Asia. Frankly, when I saw the Shikra for the first time a few years back, I thought that it was a falcon! Fool me :)
