"We visited the Bird Sanctuary which is officially called Keoladeo Ghana National Park. It is spread over 29 sq km and is known to have approximately 230 varieties of birds. There were bicycle, e-rickshaw, horse carriage options but we hired a cycle rickshaw and the rickshaw driver doubled as the guide. He, like an experienced ornithologist, spotted a wide range of birds. But, the star attraction was a python which we saw by sheer luck. It appears that spotting a python is rare and as the word spread, many people came askance about the python. But, like a typical star, our Mr. Python liked privacy, and by that time, had slid away. We also saw Deer, Chital and a Lizard which looked like a broken branch of a tree and. The expedition to the bird sanctuary is an experience notwithstanding if one is a bird watcher or a wild life enthusiast. The sprawling trees, the natural / artificial lakes and the calls of the varieties of birds roosting filled us with awe of nature – of life. We spent a large part of the day here and could have continued but – our regular lives pulled us back."

"Keoladeo NP is one of the world heritage and Ramsar wetland site in India. it supports a large number of water-birds (storks, cranes, cattle egret, purple heron, little heron etc ), non-water birds (siberian ruby throat, Bluethroat, raptors etc) and mammals (Chital, Sambar, Nilgai, Jackal, Wild pig, Common grey mongoose, fishing cat one of the endangered small cat, etc). Last report of siberian cranes were recorded from keoladeo NP itself. One the best place for bird-watching, one can enjoy the nature by walking on foot or can hire rickshaw and bicycle. All the rickshaw persons are well trained and help in identification of birds without using any field-guide and binocular. Photographers from all over the world come to get their best bird shot and I'll say keoladeo is dream place for nature lover and photographers as well. Good place for learner and professional photographer to take a chance. Please visit once and you will think of visiting again and again. Best wishes !!! Ravi"
