In the morning we visited the famous Taj Mahal. After observing of mausoleum I watched the birds. On the river I saw Great Cormorants, Grey Heron, dozens of Ruddy Shelducks and Pallas’s Gull. In the park near mausoleum in addition to common birds I recorded Cattle Egrets, Black-shouldered Kite, Yellow-footed Pigeon, Indian Gray Hornbill, Brown-headed Barbet, Rufous Treepie, Black Redstart, Common Chiffchaff, Hume’s Leaf Warbler, Red-breasted Flycatcher. Male of Gray-headed Canary-Flycatcher was singing a song. At once Booted Eagle flew by.



Next point was Itmad-ud-Daula’s tomb. This spot birds: Little and Great Cormorants, Grey Heron, Green Sandpiper, dozens of Ruffs and Black-winged Stilts, Pied Avocets, unknown to me Tern, White and White-browed Wagtails; and Black Drongo in the park.



During our visiting the Agra Fort some Egyptian Vultures soared over us.



At evening time I walked near the hotel. It addition to common city birds I saw Cattle Egrets, Indian Pond Herons, Black-shouldered Kite, Peacocks, White-breasted Waterhen, Red-wattled Lapwings, Spotted Owlet, White-throated Kingfisher, , Rufous Treepies, Lesser and Hume’s Whitethroats.
