Bird sanctuaries in Delhi

Infamous for it' smog and traffic, Delhi is also home to a variety of bird species like the 'white throated kingfisher'. This bird with it's cerulean blue coat is a spectacle to behold when it swoops down into a pond to catch it's prey. The melodious sound of the birds chirping will be a refreshing change to the blaring sound of the traffic in Delhi. Many of these birds migrate to India during the winter from European countries like Bulgaria, Siberia and Russia.These bird sanctuaries offer silence and many gorgeous species of birds.

Here is the list of 2 Bird Sanctuaries in Delhi

1. Okhla Bird Sanctuary, Noida

Built to save the ecosystem for several bird species, the Okhla Bird Sanctuary expands over an area of 3.5 square kilometres near Okhla bridge that runs across the majestic River Yamuna. The sanctuary was established in 1990 and is home to over 400 species of native birds and about 1,00,000 migratory birds, making it a famous attraction for bird watching.

2. Asola Bhatti Wildlife Sanctuary

Located on the northern side of the Aravalli Hill range, Asola Bhatti Wildlife Sanctuary is an escape from the chaos. Being surrounded by a wide array of birds, the sanctuary offers a tryst with nature for the picnic-goers. There are five hidden lakes at the Sanctuary too which make this the perfect picnic spot for summers.
