Cotton Pygmy-goose (Nettapus coromandelianus) / 08.02.2015

To be honest, when I first saw this bird from quite far, I had no idea what it was :) It is only checking my book "Birds of Southern India" written by Richard Grimmette and Tim Inskipp that I knew it was a Cotton Pygmy-goose (Nettapus coromandelianus). I wish I could have seen it closer but the lake was too big and the bird did not come my direction.

Thattekad, India.

Not baited. Not called in.
