Gujarat is one of India`s most prolific birding areas. It has a variety of habitats including the saline desert wilderness of the Great and Little Rann of Kutch, the arid grasslands and scrub of Banni in Kutch and the Kathiawad Peninsula (Saurashtra); a 1666 km long coastline with offshore islands like the 42 in the Gulf of Kachch Marine National Park, the dry deciduous forests of Gir and Barda Hills, the moist deciduous forests of South Gujarat, and mountain ranges like the Aravallis of North Gujarat, the Satpura and Vindhya hills of Eastern Gujarat and the Sahyadhris of South Gujarat. 

This geographic diversity and the state`s location on the migration route of many birds heading south from the Palaearctic ensures that visitors to the state return with an impressive list of bird sightings. The wetlands in the arid regions of Kutch and Saurashtra attract an immense variety of birds in large flocks during the winter months when migration is at its peak.

Gujarat is also the breeding area of many birds including endangered species like the Lesser Florican and Great Indian Bustard that nest in the grasslands. Large heronries can be seen at the Marine National Park and along the Bhavnagar District coastline. Below are five of the very best bird locations in the state.

In addition, Kutch District is amazing for desert and wetland birding, Gir is also interesting for birders. The Union Territory of Diu, an island offshore from Gujarat, has a Bird Sanctuary that is good for coastal birdwatching.
