Located between Agra and Jaipur, the "Keoladeo Ghana National Park" in Bharatpur is Asia's most spectacular bird sanctuary.Its 29 sq. kms of lakes and marshes, woodland and scrub provide a home, permanent or seasonal, for well over 350 species of birds. Some storks, cranes and smaller birds are winter migrants from Siberia, Central Asia or Europe; others are permanent residents or local migrants from among the 1,200 species identified in the Indian subcontinent. They use some 44,000 trees for nesting purposes every year during the monsoon and winter. Bharatpur thus provides a singular opportunity to observe a variety of birdlife.
