The marsh harriers prefer wetlands or marshy areas, especially those rich in common reed. Migratory as they are, the come down to India during winters around September-October and remain until March after which they head back to their homeland.
Marsh harriers feed on small birds, amphibians, fish and small mammals. On some occasions they have been known to hunt larger birds such as flamingos.
I quite liked this setting where the brown colored bird was sitting amongs the dried up reeds and some scorched patches of grass.
