NATURE'S PARADISE

Few people know that the 100 acre campus of SSSIHMS, Prasanthigram, is a nature's paradise. Initially it was a barren land, but now many plant and bird varieties have made the campus their home. The latest entrant being Indian National Bird the Peacock.

Fewer people know that there is a hill inside the hospital campus, which provides a breathtaking vista of the entire area. For example the previous photo and the one next are taken from the top of the hill.

View of the Bukkapatnam lake, which is around 3 kms north of the SSSIHMS, Prasanthigram campus from top of the hill.

Job done, going downhill now. It is actually an easy walk down, the angle of the photo makes it look a bit scary.

Yes the Peacock, we almost forgot. Here are two on top of a tree, in the campus. Well they won't allow any human venture any closer than that. Too shy.

So our friend here is called the Streaked Weaver bird. He builds intricate nests for the family and toils the whole day collecting long blades of grass and lets his creativity take care of the rest. Some of these nests have many enclosures (rooms?) and prefers low shrubs to build the nest than trees.
