Siberian gulls (Larus heuglini) flocking above the Ganges river in the holy city of Varanasi, forming the shape of a semi circle.

Winter by the banks of the Ganges River here is witness to new sights and sounds apart from its fabled Hindu rituals. Migratory birds throng the city from the months of November and December, their sounds a distinct presence on the holy river. They thrive in the temperate summers of central Asia's Pamir Mountains and fly down to India to escape the harsh winters.
