Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary is within easy driving distance of Bangalore, on the highway to Mysore. We decided to visit it briefly on our way back from B R Hills. We did not hire a boat to approach the bird islands, but took all our shots from the shore, as we were getting very late to go back home.
Here are the only animals which pay to gawp at, disturb, and sometimes kill, other animals:
The new signboard is getting ready, but as of now, seems to be “on the rocks”!
Also “on the rocks” are some very interesting denizens of this riverine environment…beware of putting your hand in the water, you might need to go to a second-hand shop! refer to the many crocs we saw, in my last post about the B R Temple…
