Indian Spot-bill Duck, Northern Pintail and many more, please count if you can... - At Surajpur Bird Sanctuary, Noida,...Posted by Koushik Bhattacharya on Wednesday, 7 December 2016
The Surajpur Bird Sanctuary is a nice picnic place with a huge wetland and lot of bird species. The highlight of the bird sanctuary is the 4 to 5 km (2.5 to 3.1 mi) trail around the lake. It’s a pleasant walk with lots of birds to be seen. At points, the path deviates away from the lake and you are in scrub/bushes amidst different varieties of birds such as Great Egret, Purple Swamp Hen, Moor Hen, White Throated Kingfisher, sunbirds, Black Headed Stork, and more. Binoculars will help you enjoy the birds although the walk alone can be pleasant.
