Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary

Situated in Kottayam district in Kerala, the Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary is an ornithologist's paradise. It is located close to Kumarakom village in Kuttanad region which has become synonymous with backwater tourism in Kerala.

A favourite haunt of migratory birds like the siberian stork, egret, darter, heron and teal, the sanctuary is situated on the eastern bank of Vembanad Lake and is spread across 14 acres.

Developed in a rubber plantation, Alfred George Baker is believed to have laid the foundations of Kumarakom village and the bird sanctuary by reclaiming 500 acres of wetlands from the Vembanad lake during the 1840s. Baker’s descendant Henry developed the plantation into an attractive bird sanctuary. The sanctuary was formerly known as Baker’s Estate

The main attractions are waterfowl, egret, heron, cormorant and Brahminy kite. Migratory birds from Himalayas and as far away as Siberia make the sanctuary their home during winter between November and May. Siberian cranes are the most prominent visitors to the park.

The breeding season of resident wetland birds such as white ibis, Little cormorant, egrets and herons, Indian Darter, kingfishers, etc. occurs between June and August.
