Bird watching tour - Take wings

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 Bird watching 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, these Cranes 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 Bird watching vacations 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. Experience India Tourism in all its colors.
