I saw these ducks at Jahanagirnar University.  I would love if someone would confirm whether they actually are Lesser Whistling Ducks!  And maybe the ducks on the water are not the same as the ones in the air?

Dhaka streets looked colorful yesterday with many ladies dressed in red saris!  Many gift shops had loads of items such as sweetheart mugs, cards, etc. to help people celebrate Valentine’s Day.  I even bought my wife a bouquet of red roses!
