A melodious cacophony of various sounds and notes prevails in the campus, thanks to the scores of bird species found in the forest here. Varied habitat, cool shade and water and plenty of availability of food are some of the factors that have helped sustain the density as well as diversity of bird life in campus. While this is a treat for an ardent bird watcher , the novice too scores a point as these feathered wonders are easy to spot in the landscaped greens of the property.
For a special few, bird watching trips can be organized on request and trips offer limitless scope for birding in forested areas of the property. As it is well known fact amongst birdwatchers, that birding is quite a task in thick forests, water holes have been created to attract birds and make birding a memorable experience. The forests adjoining the property have been declared as an Important Bird Area by Bird Life International.
Our forests are home to some species of endemic birds that are restricted to the Western Ghats of India and are a birders delight. We welcome you to view these amazing feathered friends of our forests and watch in awe at their sheer beauty and rareness.
While many of the of above mentioned species can be sighted on the Bird watching trails and other treks into the forests around Wildernest, the area around ‘Randhan’ and the folk dance area are a birders delight and long hours at these places can be rewarded with excellent results. Happy birding.
