Wading wonderland: A treat for birdwatchers in Navi Mumbai
Sign up for a bird-watching trail in Navi Mumbai for a glimpse of the rich avian diversity
If the birdwatcher in you has been sitting idle, this chance to spot a few migratory birds is bound to have you sit up and take note. Among the many bird-watching spots in Navi Mumbai, the Talawe Creek, situated in the southern corner of Seawoods, makes for an ideal spot to observe and learn more about various species of migratory birds and local waders.
The trail will help participants learn to identify terns, waders, herons and seagulls at the site that doubles up as a home for relocating flamingoes during this time of the year. "Talawe is an important wetland in Navi Mumbai as it is a wintering ground for migratory birds. Many bird species are ready for their return journey as the weather warms up. This is why several species are now in their breeding colours," says Isaac Kehimkar, director of iNaturewatch Foundation, the event organisers.
