CraneBird Watching
Bird watching is the very best kind of fun. It is easy, inexpensive, healthful and satisfying. Bird watching is about wild birds and the sport of birding. It's for everyone who's interested in bird watching and enjoying nature. You always don't need to go to the reserved bird habitats to watch birds. Whether it's watching birds in your own back yard or whether it's a trip to the bird habitats to watch some very rare species of birds, bird watching is your lifetime ticket to the amphitheater of nature.

Why Bird Watching
India has an enormous number of bird species, both resident and migrant and many parks in the country have over 2000 species. First time travellers are often surprised how prized this element of a experience can be. Tourists coming here have ample opportunity to notice birds, as even if they don't remember their names, for sheer dynamics and diversity they are impressive - from singing cuckoos to dancing peacocks.

Here birds are eminently visible and often actually doing something remarkable; fish eagles plucking writhing cat fish out of a river in front of you, rollers doing loops and aerobatics, vultures with 9 ft wingspans fighting over a carcass a few feet from you. For the more dedicated ornithologist Indian Wildlife Sanctuaries and Parks have access to some of the best birding guides and numerous ornithological safaris are also arranged by the forest departments and travel agents for better sighting and bird knowledge.
