A three hour drive from Delhi is all it takes to reach the Keoladeo Bird Sanctuary. Once you reach there you are in a truly different world. The park has been well maintained. For novices like me, it was a good course in bird watching. Not only are there hundreds of different kinds of birds, there are also many varieties. For first timers its good to hire a rickshaw as the rickshaw pullers are well trained in identifying birds and give you some useful information on them as well. For pros, a walk or a cycle ride would be good as then you can spend hours watching the birds from various places such as Siberia, China, Gujarat, Kashmir etc., etc. The best time we were told to be there is from Nov to Feb. After Feb the birds start going back to their home lands. Bharatpur is definitely a place you wouldn't want to come just once.
