  • Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary

    bird sanctuary


    A trip to Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary what you shouldn’t miss.  The best time for this is between November and March, when a range of migratory birds from Siberia make it their winter home. Some of the species include the Snake bird, Little Cormorant, Crow Pheasant, White-branded water Hen and Tree pie. Occasionally you can catch the native kingfishers setting the waters ablaze in a psychedelic flash of colours. The night herons, the Golden-backed woodpeckers are added delights. At the fourteen-acre bird sanctuary one can glimpse many a rare bird some of which, sadly, may not be around forever.
