Exotic birds at RanganThittu.

Photos taken at the RanganThittu Bird Sanctuary near Mysore on the river Cauvery 4 kms from Srirangapatna and 18 kms from Mysore in South India. It houses exotic birds from as far away as Siberia and even North America. Crocodiles basking in the sun are also a familiar sight.

Ranganthittu is indeed a visual delight. And the excitement continues. Wherever you turn, you will find exotic birds. It may be the open-bill stork, the white ibis, egret, heron, partridge or even the cormorant trying to say hello!

Ranganthittu
RanganThittu is in Karnataka near Mysore. It houses a bird sanctuary on the banks of a huge gorge formed by river Cauvery infested with crocodiles. The photos were taken during a boat ride in twilight hours on the gorge. Breathtaking views indeed.
