The Start of my Indian Bird List?

While watching the news on television this evening I was interested in seeing footage highlights of the First Cricket Test match between Australia and India. This match is currently under way in Bangalore, India.

Imagine my delight when part of the highlights package included some close up shots of about 15 -20  Black Kites soaring over the cricket ground.

I’ve never been birding in India. Moral dilemma: can I now start my list of Indian birds?
