This could be because of reasons like reduced rains, lack of proper nesting place etc. Whatever the reason is, it is definitely not a good sign to see the numbers coming down.
Following are the birds that I was able to spot in the 2 visits in made there.
Red vented Bulbul

Though the number of species I was able to spot was a bit more than my previous visits, I would have been happy to see more number of birds.
I agree. Your captures of the birds are nice indeed. I have been complaining about the lack of birds at our back yard feeders this year. We think owls or hawks that we have not seen or perhaps feral cats are scarring the birds away. I miss my feathered friends!
@Linda: I can understand that happening the backyard. But it is a bit of concern when the number of birds are going down in a protected sanctuary.. :(
beautiful and perfect timing :)
