Ranganathittu Birds Sanctuary for Photographers

Ranganathittu Birds Sanctuary is one of my favorite place for birding. It takes around 2 hours 45 minutes to reach from Bangalore. It is around 130 kilometers. The Bangalore Mysore highway is one of the best road to do a weekend day trip. Ranganthittu Bird Sanctuary also known as Pakshi Kashi of Karnataka. A Bird Sanctuary in the Mandya District of the state of Karnataka in India. This sanctuary is located on the banks of river Kaveri.

The park is well maintained by the government authorities, it has all sorts of facilities for tourists like Hotel, Parking area.. etc. The lush green park welcomes you into the sanctuary. A peaceful place to spend a day with family members.

Roughly around 170 birds have been recorded here in great numbers over the years. Of these, birds like Painted Stork, Asian Openbill Stork, Common Spoonbill, Woolly-necked Stork, Black-headed Ibis, Lesser Whistling Duck, Indian Shag, Stork-billed Kingfisher and other common birds like egrets, cormorants, Oriental Darter, and herons breed here regularly. The Great Stone Plover, and River Tern also nest here. The park is home to a large flock of Streak-throated Swallows. During the months of January and February, more than 30 species of birds are found. About 50 pelicans have made Ranganathittu as their permanent home.

The best season to visit Ranganathittu Birds Sanctuary is from November to June. This is one of the best spot for fresh photographers to spot and learn how to photograph birds in action. Lot of amature photographers too visit this place to get some great shots.

Below are some of the photographs which I could capture in the month of November 2013.
