Whether you are a seasoned bird watcher, or simply curious, Jaagir Lodge is the perfect spot to indulge yourself in the hobby of bird watching. The region is as famous for its exotic birds, both resident and migratory, as it is for its royal tigers. You may choose to walk, cycle or enjoy a drive through the reserve to explore the area sprinkled with streams, ponds, brooks, grassland and fields.

Every winter, River Sharda witnesses an annual migration, a true spectacle of nature, where thousands of bar-headed geese, shell drakes, pochards and tufted ducks, visit the flood plains, making it their annual wintering and breeding ground. Board a small canoe and admire the birds and animals from close quarters. Here’s a glimpse of the ultimate birdwatching experience you can expect as you #UnHolidayAtDudhwa.
