  • We (me and 2 of my friends) visited Thattekad Bird Sanctuary last week of March 2017. Our primary Objective was to see and photograph as many birds we can. Even tough we have chosen kind of off-season to visit, we were not disappointed at all. We captured many colorful birds we haven't see before. Place is awesome and a paradise for bird/nature lovers & photographers alike. We already have plan to visit again during peak season (Dec-Feb).
  • A good place to adventure. The park offers you one to two hours of walk to find and capture some of the rare Indian and migrational birds. There is bossing over here to capture some more. Only 5 birds are on display if you don't wanna walk 😛
  • Best place for bird watching. Get guide only from forest dept office, contact at sanctuary gate. So many birds.
  • The highlight of the place is the nature trail that extend upto five kms or so. Sad thing is there is no separate ticket for this and you have to pay for a museum that is shoddy and of not much interest. Time spent there is a waste whereas a walk through the nature trail is refreshing. However, the trail can't be called safe for families due to the absence of forest guards or police in the place that is really a forest.
  • My wife and I stayed at the Thattekkad Birds Song Home Stay, which was a wonderful experience. Vinod, the owner and guide, led two exciting trips with multiple sightings of rare birds, including the Ceylon Frogmouth--an amazing bird. Their rooms were ideal for our needs, meals were excellent, and Vinod is a real expert on where to find and photograph birds. Outstanding!
