Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary

On August, 2018 trip to India, I went to Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary in Bharatpur, Rajasthan. This is the place where I took some of my first photos of birds. This is literally a bird haven as you can see 400+ species at the right time (October till March). Even if you don’t come at peak season (like me, I went in August), you still can see birds. I spotted around 45 birds. If you are new, Bharatpur Sanctuary has unique guides, who drives you around in their cycle rickshaw. They have amazing knowledge and eyes for birds as they study Salim Ali’s (A world famous birder) bird books throughout the year. When you see them, you will mistake them for regular cycle rickshaw person with very little knowledge. But wait till you hear their wisdom about birds. They know more than 13 languages and guide world known birders in their trips. They are so humble and always excited to take you on the trip to bird paradise. Below are some of my favorite bird photos that I clicked and a link to my Bharatpur Photo Album Video. Hope you enjoy it. Happy Birding !!
