Chintamoni Kar Bird Sanctuary, a little oasis in a crowded city

Last time when we went to Kolkata, we made a mental note of visiting this place. This bird sanctuary is relatively new and gaining popularity among the city dwellers.

Previously when I used to stay in Kolkata, I had seen this place, it was more popular by the name "Koyal er Bagan". But when I checked it this time the sanctuary's popularity has surely increased.

The park is near to Narendrapur where there is the famous Narendrapur Ramkrishna Mission. The park is open from 6:00 am till 5 pm during summer and 7:00 am to 4:30 pm in winter.

Entry ticket per person is Rs50. What I really loved about this place is it is very clean, no plastic or litter anywhere. Moreover people are really aware, every single person I encountered was talking in a really low voice so that the quietness of the forest is not disturbed.

Well it was not a great birding day for me, so most of the photos are hazy. Anyway all are for my records. Please bear the hazy ones :)
