Bird Families

Indian Avdotka / Burhinus indicus


Detachment: Charadriiformes (Camivora)
Family: Avdotkovy (Felidae)
Rarity status category: 3


The size of a dove. The head is relatively large, with large, lemon-yellow eyes. The legs are three-toed, greenish-yellow. The dorsal side is sandy-gray with dark longitudinal streaks. The throat, the lower part of the belly are white, the goiter and chest are reddish. Flight feathers are black, with two large white spots, clearly visible in flight. In juveniles, a brownish color with streaks prevails. Inhabits open steppe and semi-desert areas with sparse vegetation. A nest on the ground in the form of a small fossa. Clutch of 2-4 yellowish-gray, irregularly shaped spots and specks of eggs. It feeds on worms, snails, insects. Twilight and very secretive bird. He leaves his shelters in the evening, while usually emitting a loud, drawn-out cry "Charlie-i-tar-li-i."


In the Orenburg region, the avdotka is a regional and stenotopic species; its number has never been high here. At present, apparently, no more than a few dozen pairs nest on the territory of the region. The main factors limiting the number of the species are grazing, destruction of clutches, disturbance of nesting birds, as well as successional changes in habitats.

Security measures

Protected by the hunting legislation of the region (5). It is necessary to establish the current distribution and abundance. Special security measures can only be developed after a more careful study of the limiting factors. As a general protective measure - the creation of reserves on the territory of the sandy massifs in the south of the region - in the valley of the river. Ilek in Akbulak and Sol-Iletsk regions.

  • Flower in the form of a woman. Checking the "miracle tree"

    For a very long time, there have been stories in the world about a miracle tree, the fruits of which are supposedly similar in shape to women. On the Internet, this story also periodically pops up in the form of videos and publications on social networks.

    Considering that still a lot of people, without hesitation, perceive this information as a miracle of nature, and willingly share it, the editors decided to clarify the situation.

    A search by the name of these fruits yielded many links to various resources with a description of the miracle tree and its fruits. But as it turned out, all posts use the same image and one video. The same illustration is spreading on social media.

    If you look closely at the images, you will notice that some of the fruits are too similar to each other.

    A search by individual figures showed that the photo is a collage of two photos: using the photo editor, "fruits" from one picture were copied and pasted into another, and vice versa.

    But are these photographs original and confirming the existence of the Ambhalabhara tree and, accordingly, the Narilatha flower?

    Further searches have shown that the tree does exist. This is one of the exhibits of the Himabhan Forest Park, which, in addition to this plant, has many other remarkable "magic" exhibits.

    The figurines are hung on wires, which are often invisible when filming or photographing from a certain angle.


    There is no such fruit in nature. What is shown in the video and photo is part of an exhibit in a nature park in the city of Phetchbaun, Thailand. The fruit, like the tree itself, is entirely man made from fiberglass and cement.
