Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary is also referred as an ornithologist's paradise.
Many migratory birds like darter, egret, heron, Siberian stork, crane,
and teal and many more... come to the sanctuary from the Himalayas,
some even from as far as Siberia. You can see local birds like cuckoo,
the water duck, the waterfowl, heron, owl, parrot, wood beetle and
flycatcher during their respective migratory seasons. Moreover, you
might get excited when you see an unbelievably beautiful paradise
of mangrove forests, green paddy fields, and coconut groves interspersed
with cool waterways and canals adorned with lilies. Truly, a little
world of thatched houseboats, Cormorants, Chinese fishing nets, and
palm-fringed lagoons is ideal for a vacation.
