Jamnagar Birding


Khijadia Bird Sanctuary

Its a unique wet land area with sea water on one side and fresh water on one side.

This area was declared as a Khijadia Bird Sanctury on 6th November 1982.

Before independence, a check dam had been built for storing the waters of the Ruparen River just near the sea, so gradually over the years with fresh water of the rain and river on one side and salt water of the sea on the other side, a unique area came up where both varieties of vegetation came up, gradualy, birds and animals also started flocking and roosting here. this is also one of the few sanctuaries in peninsularIndia where the Crested Grebe breeds.


Narara Island

This island is accessible by road. One just has to drive down to it to Narara Edge.

Here one should reach just before the tide starts, when the tide comes in, it brings the birds closer to land, making it easier for the bird watchers to watch from quite close.

The star here is the crab plover.

All types of waders can be found here.
