Munderikadavu Bird sanctuary To Come up Soon

Very soon, the wetland area of Munderikadavu and the catchment of the Kattampally river in Kannur, North Kerala, will be developed into a bird sanctuary.

There are more than 18,000 birds in the area, out of which 80 per cent are migratory birds. Some of the migratory birds visiting the sanctuary area are Northern Shoveler, Northern Pintail, Bristled Grass Bird, Grey-necked Bunting, Red-headed Bunting, Common Greenshank, Black-headed Bunting, Spotted Red Shank, Common Sandpiper, Blyth’s Reed-warbler, Wood Sandpiper, Gadwall, Garganey, Common Teal and Eurasian Wigeon. Some of them come from as far away as Northern Europe and Siberia.

This ecosystem is one of the 24 Important Bird Areas (IBA) in Kerala. They are identified by the Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS) and the Birdlife International as priority sites for conservation. With the co-operation of Tourism and Forest Departments and the local bodies, reclamation of land and environmental degradation can be curbed.
