Dear Readers,

Greetings from Jamnagar, Gujarat.

Before I write story in brief about my visit of Khijadiya Bird Sanctuary-Jamnagar, I would like to ask one question. Do we really have time to read stories on internet? while there are millions of sites to read? Anyway It was kind of excuse to write story in brief 😊

I went to Jamnagar last week to visit extended family and made my day trip to Khijadiya Bird Sanctuary which is located 15 km from Jamnagar, where sweet water ponds and salty sea water from Gulf of Kutch allows different spices of bird to breed. It is well linked with good roads but surrounded by manmade hassardous (Ship breaking yard-Sachana) However Khijadiya, Jamnagar has preserved many birds and animals to prove that even if we have smaller space to protect Wildlife, we can still save a lot.

I came across many "Nilgay" (Bluebulls-kind of dear) some wild pigs, mongoose, storks, egrets, cranes, herrons, eagle, and many others... Forest department has built some bird watching towers-mind the stairs though ;-)

I strongly recommned Khijadiya Bird Sanctuary, Jamnagar for anyone who love nature and wildlife becauase the smaller the size of region is, the more chances are to spot birds/animals. Hope you will enjoy your visit too.

Feel free to ask any question on (
