Wildlife Parks In India

Kumarakom bird sanctuary

Geo details
Coordinates: 9.5, 76.52
Location: Kottayam, Kerla, India
Area: 14 acres

Kumarakom Picturesque backwaters avifaunal kingdom at Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary is an ornithologist's paradise. Though small as compared to other national parks and sanctuaries in India, this sanctuary is a diamond in India's ecological crown and a tourists' hotspot. Located on the banks of the Vembanad Lake, Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary provides habitat to various species of resident birds. Besides this, it is also the favourite haunt in winter seasons for various migratory birds including rare Siberian Cranes.

The sanctuary is spread over 14 acres on the southern bank of the Kavanar River. Dusk and dawn are the best time for bird watching when the avian population leave their nests and fly over the lake. To get more out of Vembanad lake and the sanctuary exploration, houseboat cruise is the best way that too provides a lifetime experience.

Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary is formed by the backwaters of Vembanad lake and Kavanar river. Hence, the sanctuary is replete with mangrove forests, paddy fields and coconut groves. In the waters, blooming lilies simply amplify the beauty of the sanctuary.

Apart from large species of resident birds, Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary is the favourite abode of some migratory birds from the Himalayas, Central Asia and Siberia. Among local birds, the main attractions are waterfowl, heron, cormorant, owl, egret, cuckoo, moorhen, darter, Brahminy kite and duck. The migratory birds include Siberian crane, lark, flycatcher etc.
