Bird lovers spend hours together to spot the feathered beauties. Make a visit to the Bhigwan Bird Sanctuary, a home to 51 migratory birds including Greater Flamingos, Painted Storks, Grey Herons, Black-headed Ibis, Night Heron and Little Cormorants. The Bison River Resort in Dandeli situated on the banks of Kali River is another great spot for the best birding tours in India. Surrounded by deciduous forests, the place offers many activities such as nature walk, bird watching, roping among others. Head east and there is Chilika lake at Odissa that is filled with vibrant, rare migratory birds such as White bellied sea eagles, Graylag geese, purple moorhen, flamingo jacana and herons. What more, the Chilika Lake Bird Sanctuary is also a habitant of one of biggest breeding places of flamingos in the world. If you are lucky, you also get to witness playful dolphins and other amphibians living in the area.

To see exotic species of birds in the natural locales, visit the renowned Naina Devi Himalayan Bird Conservation Reserve in the Nainital district of Uttarakhand. Explore the birding trails and forest patches wildly comprising of broad-leaf forests, alpine grasslands and rhododendron shrubberies. Spot hill partridge, chukar partridge, kalij pheasant, goldcrest, rufous sibia, chestnut-bellied nuthatch, rock bunting, green-tailed sunbird and yellow-breasted greenfinch and endangered birds like the bearded vulture and Himalayan griffon .

A short trip but peaceful one. You can see a lot of colourful birds and relax by the beach of Chidiyatapu. Also the sunset views from the beach should be watched.
