Bird Photography at Mangalajodi, Odisha, India

Recently I had an opportunity to visit the beautiful bird sanctuary, Mangalajodi, in Odisha (Orissa) in India. Bharatpur in India is my favourite place for bird photography. I have found one more now, thanks to my friends. The birding area here is village community owned, run by hunters turned conservators of the village Mangalajodi under Tangi in Khordha district of Odisha (Orissa). On board your gently sailing boat you will be silently staring at infinity. Once in a while a flock of thousand godwits will take off, a sight to watch for sure. If you are fascinated by portrait photography of birds you can make some frame filling images of godwits, egrets, warblers, terns, kingfishers to name a few. If you are determined, we may wait for an hour or two till the purple heron catches a snake! Alternatively, while silently sailing, you may ponder about Nature and youself, forgetting everything else in life!

Here are a few images I made at Mangalajodi.
