India Wildlife Video highlights Bengal Tiger encounter
We began our day before dawn, entering the park with the morning mist still hanging over dew-drenched meadows. At sunrise, the forest came alive with bird song, from the quiet purring of Jungle Owlets and rich melodies of Orange-headed Thrushes to the raucous crowing of Red Junglefowl. We waited patiently, carefully observing the sounds of the forest. We especially listened for the shrill whistling of the Spotted Deer, an alarm call indicating the presence of a large predator. Suddenly, we were rewarded for our patience as a majestic Bengal Tiger emerged from a hidden spot along the river and casually made its way into the thick grassland.
