Wagtail in Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary Usually whenever we talk about wildlife, we unconsciously avoid most important member of our wild hub i.e. avifauna. We concentrate more on the predators like tigers and leopards. But we have many gorgeous birds all over the India, who can be equally scene stealers. So now the million dollar question is how to find them? With more than 925 breeding bird species, India is a heaven for birding. Bird watching is known as the best wildlife leisure activity in India. The ground exposure of bird watching is quite big. During your bird watching tour you can indulge in a number of activities like camping, trekking, hiking etc. If you want seclusion, it will help you to bring out the feeling of isolation. So whatever little birding you do, you will definitely start an eternal friendship with the nature.
