A sanctuary is such a wonderful word in itself and just so much more relevant in the recent times where the whole humanity is fighting a pandemic, staying home. A sanctuary is a nature reserve that keeps wildlife sheltered from dangers. Here in India, we are home to some of the most eye-pleasing bird sanctuaries that we are going to discuss about.
The climate conditions in India make for a truly amazing home for at least 1200 bird species including the migrating species flying from overseas. We at TheCrapless believe you must go visit one of the following.

White storks, Heron, Brahminy Duck, Pelicans, Flamingos, you name it and this beautiful wetland bird sanctuary has got you covered.
