Bird watching tours in Rajasthan have sated
the wishes of numerous avid bird watchers from all over
the world. Migratory birds across the globe flock in numbers
providing a virtual feast to the fraternity. Rajasthan abounds in bird sanctuaries
that have made Bird watching vacations an experience to
cherish. Demoiselle cranes form the majority of the winged
visitors to Rajasthan.
A Bird watching tour in Rajasthan is not
complete without a visit to Khichan; a village situated
130 kms from Jodhpur and 5 kms from Phalodi. Khichan is
a natural sanctuary to the bird Kurjan. Known to the Indian
Bird watching connoisseurs as Kurjan, Karkara and Kunch,
belong to South Western Europe, Black sea, Poland, Ukraine,
Kazakhstan, North and South Africa and Mongolia.
When the biting European cold makes living
intolerable, these birds make light of thousands of miles
and migrate to India. Bird watching becomes a different
experience in Keechan as the Demoiselle Cranes not only
light up the sky with their hued wings but add to the spectacle
by making a lot of noise. No wonder they have been aptly
named Kurjan since their noise sounds like kurr-kurr. The
birds occupy a massive area for their stay, and the blur
of wings all around coupled with the mixed cacophony of
cries make in Rajasthan a grand spectacle. It
goes without saying that the entire village becomes absolutely
deserted when the birds decide to finally end their sojourn
in India and return to Europe. In short a Bird watching
tour to Khichan near Phalodi is an experience to remember.
Bird watching vacations in Rajasthan
is a visual feast for the Bird watching connoisseur. Get
close to the famed Demoiselle Cranes. Take wings on a Bird
watching tour to Khichan and you will want to fly back again.
