about kumarakom bird sanctuary

As you sail across the glistening backwaters, perch yourself at the Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary for a tete-a-tete with nature. The Bird Sanctuary nestles cozily along Lake Vembanad and is also sometimes referred to as Vembanad Bird Sanctuary. Here, you'll be greeted by the local waterfowl, egret, duck, moorhen, cuckoo, owl, Brahminy Kite, Heron Darter and Cormorant and the migratory Siberian Cranes as well. 

Protected by a thick cluster of mangroves, the bird sanctuary spreads across 14 acres and is home to over 180 species of birds. It’s best to visit on foot by a 11/2-km-long walking track, where you are likely to spot heron, darters, storks, teals and common egrets. Or take a boat ride, which brings you closer to waders like waterfowl and ducks, and some fliers like parrots, larks and flycatchers. In Nov-Feb, the sanctuary turns into a transit lounge for migratory birds.  

There are also Teals, Larks, Parrots, Flycatchers etc. Stroll through the 14 acres in the morning or evening hours for bird watching and say hello to some of the rarest species of birds. If you visit the bird sanctuary during the month of November, you can easily spot some migratory birds which you wouldn't otherwise witness. A walk in the woods amidst the melodious chattering of elegant sky creatures await you at the Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary. Head here for an insightful peek into the ways of nature.
