    The Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary at Thattekkad is situarted near to Bhoothathankettu dam in Ernakulam district , about 10 km away from the town of Kothamangalam and 50 km away from the main city of Kochi. The region is an evergreen low-land forest located between the branches of the Periyar River.You can find many scenic spots along the way.The sanctuary is a habitat for different varieties of birds. The preferred time to visit is early morning. There is entry fee. A butterfly park is there inside the sanctuary. Boating facility is also available.A good place to spend with family.

    My friend and I from Maryland in the USA (both have an interest in ornithology) stayed with Jestin for several days. He knows a great deal about Kerala's very biodiverse and unique natural environment. He is a wonderful man and very hospitable. Jestin also has a good knowledge of Malayali culture and it was very interesting to engage with. The Idukki/Ernakulam/Kottayam area is extraordinarily beautiful and I would not hesitate to call it a "paradise". If you find yourself in Kerala or are planning to visit Kerala in the future definitely book a tour with Malabar Hornbill Holidays. It was a truly wonderful experience.

    Sighting of birds needs special eyes like
    Vinodh's

    Call of the birds is the key

    And timing early morning and evening

    Can see many birds if silent and watchful
