The Little Rann of Kutch Wildlife sanctuary spreads over 4950 sq km in area comprising a range habitats from saline desert plains, arid grasslands, rocky and thorn scrub to lakes and marshes. The sanctuary is known for its herds of the Asiatic Wild ass (one of its kind) alongwith population of gazelle, blue bull, wolf, and Indian foxes, jackal, jungle cat, hare etc. However it is now a hugely popular bird watching site with a number of birding sights where one can see birds such as bustard, sandgrouse, partridge, bustard quails, larks, eagle, short toed eagle, vulture, falcon, flamingoes, pelicans, ducks, cranes and storks etc. Oct-April is best time to spot migratory birds. Nawa Talao and Kharagoda Lakes are popular for bird watching.
The Nalsarovar bird sanctuary comprises a lake of about 100 sq kms, where you can view flamingoes, pelicans, geese, cranes, storks, ibises, spoonbill, wading birds, swallows, fishing eagles, osprey, harriers and other migratory birds (more than 250 varieties duering Nov - March). One can hire country boats on the lake for bird viewing, and picnic at shacks the on the islands. The best time to reach there is just before Sunrise as the lake is calm and quiet and flock of birds waiting for their regular food. There is not credible accommodation available around and therfore Nalsarovar is a popular bird watching excursion ex-Ahmedabad and visited enroute to Dasada.
