Bird Photography at Dudhwa National Park

Birding at Dudhwa National Park, Lakhimpur Kheri, UP

Got a surprise chance to go to Lucknow and I thought of making a visit to Dudhwa National Park once again. However this time it was only for birding. Only one day of birding and I was able to add 8 new species to my life list. Now I'm nearing 350 and it becomes increasingly difficult to add new species to my list.

I stayed at Dudhwa Wilderness Camp ( ) and their facility and location is amazing. You can enjoy early Morning Jungle trek for some great birding opportunities.

Here are some of the pics I clicked while my stay at Dudhwa.
