Birds of India by Sri Vijay Cavale
Vanamala Center for Art and Culture had organized a wonderful Audio Visual program on Birds of India by an ace photographer Sri Vijay Cavale on 31st May 2014.
Cavale’s program was unique in two ways. He first presented plenty of beautiful birds, which are surprisingly found in and around our houses. His slide show was accompanied by the call of the birds, which is not only rare but also difficult to record. But Vijay being an expert in birds and also photography, was able to capture wonderful pictures of birds along with their voices.
Apart from birds around house hold, he presented some exotic birds in remote corners of India.
His slides on human exploitation of birds in China were heart rending. It showed how humans snatch food from birds by tying a band around its neck to prevent them swallowing the fish.
The show was concluded with a wonderful clipping of Monarch Butterfly’s migration, for thousands of miles. The amazing feature of these butterflies is that the fourth generation of butterflies return to the point of origin.
Vijay Cavale’s presentation was not only interesting but also educative. The enormous work done by him shows his perseverance, enthusiasm and great interest in nature photography.
