about kheechan bird sanctuary

Surprisingly, the outskirts of Jodhpur contain a very diverse variety of flora and fauna, even when it sits right at the gates of the Thar Desert. Nature lovers and wildlife enthusiasts may get a pleasant surprise when they come across the biodiversity on display at Kheechan Bird Diversity.

This small village is known for its abundance of avian biodiversity. Located 50 km away from Jodhpur and 5 km away from Phalodi, this sanctuary is especially famous for a bird species called “Kurjan”, or the Demoiselle Cranes. These birds get their local name from the distinct ‘kurr-kurr’ sound that they make while flying. Other local names for this bird are, Kunch and Karkara. They hail mainly from south-western Europe and Mongolia every year during the winter months to escape the harsh climate of Europe, and flock in this place to create a natural bird sanctuary. The village local consider these birds as their guardians. Over the years their numbers have increased to about 6000, and this has also given a boost to the number of birdwatchers in the area.
