Migratory birds nestle in Kodiyakkarai sanctuary

Exotic migratory birds from India and other parts of the world are making it to the Kodiyakkarai Bird Sanctuary near Chennai in Tamil Nadu, offering a treat to both bird lovers and tourists.

These birds arrive in India during the winter season. The sanctuary is one of the favoured destinations for these birds.

However, locals feel that a poor rainfall has led to a decrease in bird numbers this season.
