Quarry and ducks at Vetal Tekdi, Pune

This hill in Pune, with arms spreading in different directions, is at its best in the monsoons.
Visible and audible birdlife includes ducks like spotbills and dabchicks that serenely glide on the calm waters collected in the disused quarry, peacocks, painted partridge, common hawk cuckoo, iora, babblers, small minivets, white eyes and a variety of warblers.
