JOSHUA BOSCOW: AN 11 YEARS OLD WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHER

At the age of 11 when most of the kids go playing in the grounds or get struck to the smartphones or television screens this guy from Mumbai goes bird watching. Till now he has discovered over 75 bird species. Resident of Chembur sub division of Mumbai Metropolitan Area Joshua Boscow is the youngest member of Bombay Natural History Society.He spends most of his time in birdwatching. He has picked camera as a weapon of choice.He joined the Pan India Wildlife Research Organisation at 5. Boscow maintains a bird book where he keeps the record of every new bird he sees.His documentation has helped many of his classmates in identifying different bird species. While asked about this he said that everyday he comes to sit in the lap of nature to see the birds singing.I hear a lot of sounds in the region but i cant see most of the species. He comes here to see the colours of their eyes, feathers and how they makes their nests. Whenever i see a new bird i go researching that where this bird came from , is it a migratory bird what does it eats it's a new story every day. His mother told us that he started noticing birds at the age of four when a pair of Bulbuls came to reside over a gulmohar tree which was right outside our window.He was used to sit for hours on that window and when his uncle noticed this he gifted him his first camera. In 2015 Joshua was selected by his school to teach his juniors in the kindergarten and share his photographs with the school.
