Few other areas of the world enjoy such a varied landscape as
that of the Indian sub-continent, and the diversity of the
scenery is fully reflected in the wonderfully rich bird-life.
There are over 2,000 species of birds, although many of these
are rare or of limited range, and the birds form the greater
part of those likely to be seen anywhere in the area. There is
a great difference between the bird-life of the hot, dry, open
plains in the west and the steamy rainforests of the eastern
border, and between the snowy peaks and pinewoods of the
Himalayas. All these places have their own characteristic
birds, locally distributed species which only live in their
particular environment, whether it be hill-forest, lowland
jungle or desert. In contrast, many of the common birds of
India are very widely distributed. Some of the birds families
which occur throughout the world’s tropics include Pelicans,
Ibises, Trogons, Barbets, Parrots and Cuckoos, while the birds
of prey, owls, crows and the shorebirds have a world-wide
distribution. Many of India’s most characteristic birds are in
families which only occur in the Old World tropics, such as
Hornbills, Sunbirds, Bulbuls, Babblers, Cuckoo, Shrikes, while
the Leafbirds or Fruitsuckers are confined to the Oriental
Region. Families in which India is especially rich are the
forest species which include Woodpeckers, Pigeons, Owls,
Cuckoos, Pheasants, Drongos, Crows, Minivets, Babblers,
Flycathers and Warblers.
The best time for birding in India is from October to April.
The duration of your tour can be as long as you like but we
would suggest a one to two week Bird Watching tour itinerary
in India to fully appreciate and enjoy the birding experience
We look forward to welcome you in India !
