This village is home to 500- 600 farmer families that stay as a close knit community.Dawn and dusk are best time to spot peacocks as they venture into the fields for food. They might also hover around in the front yards of village houses if they notice scattered grains. Since peacocks are known for their shyness, one needs to maintain distance and remain silent making sure not to startle them. Apart from peacocks, there are a variety of other birds and butterflies that one can spot.
