Kanha Birds Checklist


Madhya Pradesh

Kanha tiger reserve is home of many bird species. While doing jeep safaris, we can enjoy the bird watching in many ways at frequent interval of time. Here birding is very good in all safari zones the only thing required from our side is to patiently focus on birds. During jeep safaris, most common mistake from guest side is that they focus on predator animals and keep on overlooking birds thus miss large number of birds photography opportunity. In compare to tiger tracking, birds photography is more easy and we get plenty of opportunity. At Kanha, we can easily find nesting sites of vultures at Sal tree top, frequently encounter racket-tailed drongo, serpent eagle, indian roller, jungle babbler, little egret, cattle egret etc. Kanha zone, Sarhi zone, Kisli zone, Khatia buffer zone are good for birding. On some occasion, we can have sighting of Malabar Pied Hornbill. Even if we visit the local village routes, we can easily do the birding as many predatory birds, prefers to do nesting near human society regions as they get their prey nearby by vilages, agricultural fields, local ponds etc.
