Kolleru Bird Sanctuary near Eluru is a large freshwater sanctuary that sustains 63 species of fish, crustaceans, and molluscs and is fed by two seasonal streams – the Budameru and Tammileru.  It is linked to both the Krishna and Godavari rivers, serving as their natural flooding reservoir. 

Ages ago, a diverse population of birds including Siberian cranes, Asian openbills, pied avocets, black headed ibis, spot billed pelicans, migratory ducks, and painted storks discovered this lake hidden in the deep forest, and they’ve staked their claim here ever since.  Seasonally, they are joined by other migratory birds such as pintails, herons, egrets, pelicans, red crested pod chards, and teals – it totals to an estimated 20 million birds that are either native or migratory.  Winter sees migratory birds fly in from as far away as Siberia, Egypt, the Philippines and Australia to nest in the marshy area.
