Arun Menon has been intrigued by nature and wildlife since his childhood but developed an avid interest in birds only five years ago. His day job keeps him crunching numbers but weekends are for nature getaways. He lives in Bangalore and is associated with the Kenneth Anderson Nature Society, named for the author and hunter (later conservationist) who is considered the Jim Corbett of southern India.

Arun also blogs at Idle Mind.
