The Kutch Bustard Sanctuary
Located in the Nalia Taluka in Gujarat, Kutch District, this sanctuary is a brilliant destination if you want to set your eyes on the Great Indian Bustard. Revered as one of the largest birds of flight, this critically endangered species only exists in a very few places of the Indian subcontinent.
With an ostrich like manoeuvrability and distinct features, this bird is one of the most coveted by ornithologists around the world.
Visiting the Kutch bustard sanctuary will also come hand in hand with the salt lands of Little Rann of Kutch and another rare species, the Wild Ass.
The Taloda Forest Range
In the heart of Maharashtra lies the Taloda Forest range, a place known to house one of the most rare bird species in India. The Forest Owlet is so rare that it was considered extinct from the late 1800’s to 1997, when the bird was rediscovered.
It still remains an endangered species and is one of the hardest on the list to spotted in its natural habitat.
The Forest Owlet is today found in the tropical deciduous forests of Chattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh – so get in touch with reputed travel agencies in Kolkata to book your tour in the hunt for this rare bird!
The Sunderban Delta
Not very far from Kolkata itself, the Sunderban delta is home to one of the rarest birds in the world – the spoon-billed sandpiper. Small with white feathers spotted in black or brown, it has black bill which makes it different compared to all other birds in its family.
Getting to the Sunderbans from Calcutta is an easy job and needs no more than just a couple of hours. However, catching a glimpse of this rare gem will be difficult, especially when you have come to visit one of the thickest mangrove sites in the world.
These are the 3 places that you need to visit if you like spotting rare birds and capturing them in frame. If you want to find out more on the kind of itinerary and logistics you will need, then visit your best travel agency today!
