Kerala: Birds of the Southern Forests
The many different ecosystems of Kerala provide for a variety of birdwatching possibilities. From the known lowland evergreen forests of Thattekad to the grasslands of Munnar, there is a lot on the plate.
What iO thinks
One of the foremost ornithologists of India, Dr. Salim Ali, had rated Thattekad as one of the richest in biodiversity in peninsular India. This is complimented by the Vembanad lake near Kumarakom, the grasslands and tea estates of Munnar. The presence of highlands and plains and the great fertile plains of the region provide adequate comfortable conditions for the birds – and in turn, adequate birdwatching possibilities for you.
