Jamnagar: A paradise for bird watchers

Lesser flamingos
Jamnagar in Gujarat, India is a hub of migratory birds. Located on the coast of Gulf of Kutch, Jamnagar attracts a huge population of birds and along with them birding enthusiasts!

Winter is a good time to visit Jamnagar if you wish to sight migratory birds.  Jamnagar also has a marine national park, and various other tourist attractions.

These are all great shots. Didn't know you could spot birds in Jamnagar. We know so little of our country.

Opened this post of yours with child like excitement. Visited Jamnagar last August, and you bet we were thrilled to see the birds there.
I have few pictures on my picture album perhaps.

Very informative and eye catchy post :)
In Bhopal, there is a place with the same name. It has a fort and I tell you, it's damn scary!

Keep blogging O:)
