about raiganj wildlife sanctuary

This is India’s second largest bird sanctuary and gets over 71,000 birds every year. It supports 50 per cent of the global Asian openbill population and occupies pride of place on the world ornithology map. The Kulik River wraps itself around the sanctuary, flooding it in the monsoon, inviting the Asian open bills, whose diet is the apple snail insect found in these marshy waters. When the migratory birds descend between July and November, it is a virtual siege. They invade every plant, tree, hole, niche, groove and water body! Raiganj does not offer much else for the enthusiastic tourist besides birdwatching.
