Kanwar Lake – Bird report

Blog is not related to Bangalore. Just writing it for Nature Lover. Kanwar lake (Villages says Kabar Lake) is the largest freshwater lake of India. My 3 weeks back visit stun me. Birding period was very small. I did 1.5 hrs of birding only. Some of the snaps from the lake.

Its always fun to search those place for which maps, wikis won’t help. My last trip to Bihar, I decided to find out those bird sanctuary which are their in map but there is no feedback, no wiki, no information. I visited Asia’s largest freshwater oxbow lake – Kanwar Lake (Kanwar Bird Sanctuary) . I added whatever i knew about the place. Please visit the wiki of Kanwar lake as well.

I can just tell this is one of the must visit places if you are around Bihar for any reason and have interest in bird life.  What is as clear as purified water, its huge, its drastic in view. Though a good part of it has been captured by local farmer and slum but they are helpful if you want to do boating or want to have fish curry :P.

I did some dramatic mistake in my camera setting, so pictures are not up to mark but still enjoy :).
