Extending across 14 acres on the southern bank of the Kavanar river, the Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary is a favoured haunt of migratory birds (and naturally an ornithologist’s dream!). Here you can get houseboats and motorboats to take you on bird watching tours. Formerly a rubber estate known as Baker’s Estate, its owner developed the land into a bird sanctuary for a variety of winged life including waterfowl, cuckoos, owls, egrets, herons, cormorants, moorhens, darters, Brahmani Kites, and ducks. In the migratory season, the list extends to include Siberian cranes, parrots, teals, larks, flycatchers and others making this one of the most sought-after Kerala tourism spots.
At dawn, these birds rise out of their forest homes and fly out over the lake. An early morning trek well before sunrise is an ideal time to bird watch.
