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.
