Nightjar on the road
The Radhanagari Wildlife Sanctuary is a located in Kolhapur, Maharashtra. It is known as the bison sanctuary. The Indian Bison (Bos gaurus) is beautiful! I was so taken aback by how big it was, I couldn’t get my camera up fast enough to take a photo. It has a white nose, white legs up to the knees and it was almost as big as the jeep I was sitting on.

A missed photo opportunity of the Indian Bison
Me on a jeep…no surprises there.
The sanctuary is also home to the rare and globally threatened Nilgiri wood-pigeon (Columba elphinstonii). I captured a mediocre photo of this lovely bird. I also saw mongoose, night jars, barking deer and the infamous giant red squirrel! Nilgiri Wood Pigeon
I took photos of an Indian Leopard foot print and asked if I could hike off-trail to look for it. The answer was a resounding, NO! Indian Leopard footprint
