Bhigwan – Birdlife

What is so interesting about Bhigwan? Not many people would have even heard the name of this place. And that’s true. Bhigwan is nothing but a small village/town in Maharashtra, India. Having passed by this place hundreds of time I never new it was filled with such a beauty!

Bhigwan is based on the backwaters of Ujni dam, built on Bhima river. So whats a big deal about it, right? But those backwaters are a temperory home hundreds of migratory birds. As if those birds come to vacation over here all the way from Siberia!

Flamingos, Sea gull, Ibis, Stroke, Heron to name a few. Total treat for photographers. Have a look at few photographs that we managed to click.
