Eldhose K.V is an ardent and experienced ornithologist residing in Thattekkadu Bird Sanctuary in Central Kerala .He focuses on birding in whole of SouthIndia and he has been leading bird tours since 1999.His birding experience go back to his childhood when he was inspired by Dr.Salim Ali's book,"Birdsof Kerala".What started of a hobby grew to an intense passion.

In 1999,Eldhose had the opportunity to assist in the production of the BBC series,"Life of Birds".He identified the habitat and three nests of the elusive RufuosWoodpecker.In appreciation of his knowledge and effort ,Sir David Attenburough giftedEldhose with a pair of binoculars and that started off a profession in birding.

The previous sixteen years of birding were done without any visual aids.This enhanced his capability to identify birds by their calls.Eldhose is an expert in tracking birds by their calls.His dream project is to develop bird habitat by planting ficus trees in rich birding area.
