Painted Storks at Rabindra Sarovar

This year, all of a sudden and perhaps for the first time since I have been visiting the Rabindra Sarovar in south Calcutta, we have had a small flock of painted storks staying over in the little island in the middle of the lake.

Initially, I thought that they had come from Siberia or some other very cold place but it seems that is not quite true. They are native to India.
