A 150km drive and a short boat ride later, you will be at Bhigwan, in the middle of Bhima river hoping that the leader of the flock decides to land and the followers follow. We had some bird watchers with us who helped us identify them. Here’s a list of birds we spotted

  • Flamingo
  • Painted Stork
  • Openbill Stork
  • Large Cormorant
  • Little Cormorant
  • Grey Heron
  • Glossy Ibis
  • White Ibis
  • Spotbill
  • Shoveller
  • Purple Moorhen
  • Red Walted Lapwing
  • Blackwinged Stilt
  • Redshank
  • Great Blackheaded Gull
  • River Tern

Bird spotting is very unlike us but we did enjoy the experience. Post this, we headed towards Bhairavnath temple which is close to Bhigwan. One of the few temples I have seen in Maharashtra with good handwork.
