Endemics hold a special fascination for birders. They are the obvious target birds for a birder visiting a new part of the globe. But at deeper level, they fascinate us since they have an aura of mystery and exoticness, each endemic representing a unique trajectory through time and space of the biogeographic processes that have shaped Earth’s biodiversity. The Indian Subcontinent has more than its share of endemics since its biodiversity is characterized by both confluence and isolation – confluence of three great avifaunas (Oriental, Palearctic and African) and isolation due to mightly mountain ranges, deserts and oceans. Vivek explores this avifauna with a particular focus on the endemics of the Western Ghats (isolated forested hills of South West India) and Northern plains, using photographs from his recent trips. Join Vivek in exploring the birds of the Land of the Tiger and the Taj.


Vivek Tiwari
A founder member of delhibird. Vivek loves to share his passion for the birds of India, which is where he started birding during college about 20 years go. Since then he’s lived and birded in North America – 5 years on the east coast during graduate school at Princeton, NJ and the last 15 years as a Santa Clara County,CA resident. A self-described “birder first”, Vivek took up bird photography as a way of enhancing the birding experience but finds himself  increasingly drawn to bird photography as a rewarding and consuming pursuit in its own right. Vivek has also birded extensively in Central and South America and draws upon this experience in comparing and contrasting the Old and New World avifaunas in his talks. Vivek works at Intel Corp. where is the Director of the Corporate Platform Office. Vivek is also the Coordinator for the South Asian Natural History Network (nathistory-india@princeton.edu).

This is the first of the talks, we have another in October titled - Rare Birds of India
