Birds at HBCSE

Birds are amongst the most abundant group in vertebrates in our environment. They inhabit almost all places on earth! One does not have to visit a forest to see birds. We see birds even outside our homes and offices. Even green pockets in the concrete jungle can support a variety and abundance of birds. Let us take a look at some of the birds that are sighted on HBCSE campus, Mumbai.
