Free Bird Walk at Satpool Wetlands !!

On the occasion of World Environment Day, Jungle Buddies hosted a free bird walk at Satpool Wetlands in Dombivli West. Early June is the best time to observe and photograph Watercock, a wetlands species that is active and breeding during the pre-monsoon season. Our goal was to observe this species in the wetlands. Over 15 participants attended the free bird walk, and we were fortunate to spot 3 Watercocks actively foraging in the wetlands. In addition to the watercock, we also encountered forest species such as the Indian Grey Hornbill, Yellow-footed Green Pigeon, Small Minivet, and the monsoon messenger, Pied Cuckoo, all the way from the African continent.
