species of birds are found in India. is a very big share
among the diversity found in the entire known world of birds.
India's location on globe and its own varied topography make India a favorite breeding and nesting spot for birds suited to unique climates, habitats and vegetations. There are more than 700 protected reserves for wildlife in India which include close to 103 national parks. Despite this, there are many birding locations that are not part of protected reserves but some very rare birds are found in such locations. Indian Moments, through years of off-beat travel explorations, compilation of local knowledge sources and taking help of most experienced nature guides has organized exceptional birding trips for some very discerning bird watchers.

It's difficult to make out the most compelling reason of any birding enthusiast's interest in taking an expedition without a comprehensive discussion. We have seen many who come all the way to only see the Indian Tree-Creeper for which Tal Chhapar is a promising spot, or the Forest Owlet which may only be seen in Melghat Tiger Reserve. Or, to see the yellow-eyed Green Pigeon one may have to go the open carcass ground near Bikaner. The purpose of many sincere bird watchers is often much refined than the obvious. India, however, has many areas which may bring big smile on the face even the most choosy bird enthusiast. Such places can be the Jim Corbett National Park, Neora Valley National Park, the Nilgiri Reserve stretch of Western Ghats and Andaman Islands. Ideas and options are as diverse as India.
