Migratory birds attract bird watchers
Rampur, Nov 25 (ANI): Nature enthusiasts and tourists gathered at a barrage on river Kosi in Uttarakhand’s Ramnagar town to observe migratory birds that flock to the warmer climes to ward off the extreme cold of their Arctic home grounds. Ramnagar is the gateway to Jim Corbett National Park, the oldest national park and a famous tourist destination. These birds from Siberia and Central Asia use wetlands as their transitory camps, which play a vital role in sustaining a large population of the breeding birds. From early November onwards, these migratory birds keep arriving till December and return during the spring season. Hundreds of thousands of exotic birds such as mallards, greyleg geese, gadwalls, teals, shovelers, pochards and coots make their temporary nests in Ramnagar. With the onset of winter, the Siberian birds spread their wings to begin a journey spanning thousands of kilometers.
