Ranganatittu – A photo Diary

All the photos in the post are captured in Ranganatittu Bird Sanctuary Karnataka. Ranganatittu Bird Sanctuary is pride of Karnataka for being a host for a variety of migratory birds throughout the year. Birds fly to Ranganatittu from various parts of the world including distant American, African continents. Birds fly thousands of kilometers to reach the place. The climate, clean water of river Kaveri and abundant fish availability in the place are main reasons. Variants of Pelican, Storks, Egrets, Heron, Cormorant family, small birds likes and piper, kingfisher, Mud swallow, Peacock etc are commonly seen (The list does not end here though) Apart from these, fresh water Crocodiles are also major attraction of the place.
