    Bird Survey at Medical College, Kottayam

    The bird survey conducted by Junior Naturalists of the Tropical Institute of Ecological Science (TIES) on May 23rd at Government Medical College Kottayam has identified 27 species. Common and Jungle Myna, Rufous Treepie, Black Drongo and White-cheeked Barbet were the most common birds identified in the campus.
