Where the birds are

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~ George Eliot

Soon, monsoon will end. Autumn is coming. Fly like the birds, and go where you choose to go. If you are for the birds, going where the birds are is the perfect travel choice.

Some of the popular bird sanctuaries in India are the Chilka Lake Bird Sanctuary in Orissa, Kaundinya Bird Sanctuary in Andhra Pradesh, Vedanthangal Bird Sanctuary in Tamil Nadu, Ranganthittu Bird Sanctuary in Karnataka, Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary in Kerala and the Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary in Rajasthan among others.

However, travel to where the forests are green and the mountains high, and you shall find birds everywhere.
