About me

I am Sutirtha Lahiri, a researcher at IISER Pune and an alumnus of the Wildlife Institute of India, Dehradun. I  have travelled extensively in search of birds, but these forays have taught and enriched me with more than just birds; from meeting some fantastic people to visiting some beautiful place, and to experiencing local culture and good food, I must admit that birding has given me much more than just a life-list to tick off. This website is dedicated to birds and travel and people, and some more birds. In this website, you can also find information about my current and past research, some photographs from fieldwork as well as how to reach out to me!

When I am not birding, I am usually seen with a cup of tea, ready to discuss books, music, movies, and (sometimes) the trivialities of life.
