Description: Ranganathittu is a bird sanctuary that can be visited throughout the year...
Ranganathittu is a bird sanctuary that can be visited throughout the year by bird lovers. Easily accessible from Bangalore, enroute to Mysore, visiting this place is a great option for both children and adults. Visit early in the morning and hire a boat. November heralds in the winter migrants who stay put until March, adding to the already numerous varieties of birds you can see here.

Just outside Srirangapatna, 4th from Srirangapatna, near Mysuru, the Cauvery river meanders around a string of tiny nesting sites of waterfowls. Experiences the excitement of a boat ride that takes you within touching distance of the birds as marsh crocodiles bask in the sun.

Rangantittu is a home to several migrant birds from across the world. The best time to visit is after december when most of the birds come for breeding. Its a photographers and nature lovers delight to spot many rare and exotic birds

Ranganathittu is a spot on the river Kaveri (about 15 kms from Mysore) where there are six small islands in the river (further downstream is the large island of Srirangapatna). We drove from Mysore. The road to Ranganthittu ranges from 'excellent' in some portions and 'very bad' in some patches. Ranganthittu is where many birds come to nest. You will... More

It was off-season, so could not spot a lot of varieties. But there were a lot of birds, and a few crocs who seemed to be disinterested in the human species :-)
