Take flight to these sanctuaries in spring and be surprised by the variety of rich avian life that you can see this spring.
Traditionally spring may not seem like the best time to see birds. However, if you look around, you will realise that it has a wonderful combination of both resident and migratory birds before they return.
The country has several sanctuaries that are abuzz with birdsong and spring makes for some great sights too. Paradise flycatcher, Tickell’s Blue Flycatcher, White browed Fantail, Changeable Hawk Eagle, Crested Serpent Eagle, and Brahminy Kite are some species that are seen in the spring too.
Ashy Wood Swallow, Black Headed Oriole, Ash Tail, Crested Goshawk, Jerdon’s Nightjar, Indian Cuckoo, Yellow-browed Bulbuls and more are also seen.
Some sanctuaries are home to Bar-headed Goose, Red-breasted Goose, Garganey, Northern Shoveler, Gadwall, Northern Pintail, Black-winged Stilt, Kentish Plover, Marsh Sandpiper and Collared Pratincole.
