Situated on the banks of the Kaveri, Ranganathittu Bird
Sanctuary is located near Mysore in Karnataka. The six isles on
the river are also part of the sanctuary. The sanctuary was
declared a bird sanctuary in 1940, when the noted ornithologist
Dr Salim Ali while surveying the birds of the area put emphasis
on declaring Ranganathittu a bird sanctuary. Since then, the
sanctuary has become a paradise for bird watchers.
Every year a number of bird lovers throng the sanctuary to see
the avian in-habitants of the sanctuary. The sanctuary is quite
popular both among Indian and foreign tourists. Apart from home
to native avian habitants, the sanctuary each year attracts a
large number of migratory birds. Wildlife experts believe that
migratory birds come to this sanctuary as far as from Siberia,
Australia and even North America.
