Two years back, I was on summer vacation with my family in Konkan at my in-laws’ place. One afternoon, we were relaxing in the veranda after lunch. My attention was caught with a distintive long and high-pitched whistle sound. This melodious sound was coming from the nearby trees. I quickly grabbed my camera and started looking around the high trees.

The whistle sound was so different one. It was definintely a bird call which I had never heard it before. I was becoming anxious to locate the bird. From around a distance of 20-30 metres, I could locate a bird sitting on the highest branch of a thorny tree.
