Birds of Cheruvally

This is the list of birds I have found from Cheruvally, an ordinary village in Kottayam District of Kerala. It is my home village from where I started bird photography. So I think it will be a nice idea to compile the observation I made.

This is not a complete list, and I will continue to add more information here. Now a total of 32 species have been included.
