Default Re: Birds At Nalsarovar

Nal Sarovar Bird Sanctuary, consisting primarily of a 120.82-square-kilometre lake and ambient marshes.

It is situated about 64 km to the west of Ahmedabad near Sanand Village, in the Gujarat state of India.

It is the largest wetland bird sanctuary in Gujarat, and one of the largest in India.

Millions of birds visit the bird sanctuary in winter and spring.

It harbors over 250 species of wetland birds.

The lake attracts over 210 species of birds in the winter, and harbors a variety of plants and animals.

Besides a few mammalian species including the endangered wild ass and the black buck, its migratory bird population includes rosy pelicans, flamingoes, white storks, brahminy ducks and herons.

Thousands of migratory waterfowl flock to this sanctuary just after the Indian monsoon season.

The shallow area and ponds on the outer fringes of the lake attract the wading birds that feed in the shallow waters.

Winter migrants from the north including purple moorhen, pelicans, lesser and greater flamingos, white storks, four species of bitterns, crakes, grebes, brahminy ducks and herons visit Nal Sarovar.

Between November and February, the lake is home to vast flocks of indigenous and migratory birds.

Ducks, geese, pelicans and flamingos are best seen early in the morning and in the evening and the sanctuary is best visited as a day excursion by personal vehicle, taxi, as buses are infrequent and there is no convenient accommodation.

Hours for visiting the lake are 6 am to 6 pm.

There is an entry fee per visitor and camera, however for boating one needs to negotiate with the local boatmen, though prescribed rates are mentioned at the gate.

The best time to reach there is just before sunrise as the lake is calm and quiet and flock of birds waiting for their regular food.
