Kottayam»Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary

The bird sanctuary here, which is sprawled over 14 acres, is a favorite haunt for migratory birds and an ornithologist's paradise. Egrets, darters, herons, teal, waterfowl, cuckoo, wild duck and migratory birds like the Siberian stork that arrive in flocks are a fascination for visitors. The best way to watch the birds of the Kumarakom sanctuary is a boat trip round the islands.
