Hello everyone, Today i.e. 12th November 2017 is the 121st birth Anniversary of the person who is famously called the ‘Birdman of India’. Only due to his dedication and systematic bird surveys across India, Ornithology has its place today’s India.
Being a padma bhushan and padma vibhushan awardee, sir Sálim Moizuddin Abdul Ali is a hero for many Indian birders /bird watchers.
Today, my post is dedicated to him.
This post is about the Salim Ali bird Sanctuary in Goa and few of the birds that I captured in my lenses around my neighbourhood.
Lets start with the place which told me about this legend for the very first time. Yes I didn’t know about him, as I was never that of a bird watcher (always loved the wings though in the open sky). But only when I came to Goa and started waking up to bird chirps, I have grown this keen interest in them. I cant say, how much I love watching their activities and trust me I can do that all day 🙂
Lets start with Dr Salim Ali bird Sanctuary, that is situated on the Chorao Island in North Goa district along the mandovi river.
As soon as you deboard the rivander-chorao ferry, you will find this sanctuary just to your left.
This is the entrance path.
As soon as you enter this place, serenity will attack you from everywhere.
Walking paths has been beautifully carved helping birders and tourists to make their way.
These beautiful yet strong stone pallets will take you closer to what-we-call Peace.
Not sure what these are. Could be find everywhere in the mud. I took this capture as they formed animal figures to me 🙂
I also see myself as I grow up – says the tree
Beautiful stretch of rich flora and fauna can be seen here along with the various kinds of bird calls. I wish I had a better lense when I went to this place last time. Unfortunately couldn’t spot any of those eye catching wings.
No wonder I want to visit this place again and again. Next time I am here, you bloggers will be with me 🙂 I am such a jungle person.
You can see the happiness index 😀
I am sun’s alarm clock~says the bird
Serenity and calmness is what your mind finds in such places. Find some time for your soul and visit these nature bound places, not just to find birds but to find yourself 🙂
These are my best frames that could describe the peaceful attitude of this location.

Stay with me till my next post which will include my bird spotting activities in Goa. *Promise*
Till then,keep smiling and keep birding:)
