Winters and Bird watching is the perfect combo that a wildlife enthusiast can get at the wetlands of Odisha. Mangalajodi, Bhetnai and Satkosia Gorge sanctuary are the ultimate place to witness birds in winters. The wetlands attracts thousands of migratory birds and other resident birds. Mainly Ducks, Raptors and waterfowls are observed in this wetlands. The gorge sanctuary hosts quails, storks, ibises and many more species. Bhetnai also gives you an opportunity to photograph black bucks in their habitat. And with sheer luck you can spot the elusive tiger at Satkosia. In Odisha places like Mangalajodi hosts more than 1.5 lakhs individual birds during winters which migrates from various parts of the world.

These birding photography trips are organized by GroupOuting™ in the months of November to early march to have maximum sightings. A short drive of 60 kms from the nearest town will lead one to this important bird conservation area. This area is an extension of Chilka lake where birding is done by boating in the lake. All boat rides are under strict supervision of our naturalists. Our team comprises of local guides, best boatman in the area as well as members of bird club. This area listed as an important bird conservation area where birds in flight, and at dusk light, in wetland landscape, are prime pictures to capture. One can also witness various religious places in nearby villages of Khorda.

Satkosia gorge sanctuary in Angul is another place to shoot landscapes in red backdrop and in Mahanadi river bed. Bhetnai and grasslands are visited for imaging blackbucks in grassland ecosystem. In all our trips we provide the best of accommodations in standard resorts and jungle camps in these areas.
