Bird Watching


Bird watching in Kanha Tiger Reserve
India is a famous destination amongst birding enthusiasts who visit different destinations across the country to spot the flying friends of ours. India is known to have more than 1200 bird species of which 259 bird species can be spotted at Kanha national park. Wildlife enthusiasts from all over the world visit Kanha to spot the striped cat – Tiger and other free roaming wild animals in their natural habitat. Birding fans visit Kanha to see birds in the core and buffer region of this famous tiger reserve.

Kanha forest landscape is famous for bird watching and one of the biggest advantage for birders is the abundance of diverse species which can be spotted relatively more easily than at other wildlife destinations of central India. Lack of pollution, low use of chemical fertilisers and pesticides and protection from poaching can be easily understood by richness of bird species here.

Birding buffs can visit Kanha in December – January to spot migratory birds along with many local species of birds. Another good period to spot birds, especially local species is mid March till late April when most flowering trees are on bloom.

We have noted 72 species of birds within the premises of the resort till now including Paradise fly catcher, Pea cock, Grey Shrike, Black capped Oriole, Purple Sunbird, Indian Maina, Bank Maina, Red Munias, Grey Hornbill, Red vented Bulbul, Spotted owlet, Brown fish owl and many others.

If interested in bird watching do remember to bring a good guide book on central Indian birds along with a spotted scope and / or binoculars. We can plan bird trips inside the national park and in buffer zone. Do remember, best way to spot birds is on foot, so we suggest earth colour clothing which may help us in getting near our flying friends without disturbing them.
