Seeing a peacock is an amazing sight for anyone as it is one of the most beautiful birds seen in the wild. The exotic creature is of great sentimental value in India for the additional reason that it is the country’s national bird, symbolizing grace, pride and beauty. Peacocks are given a large degree of protection in India with laws even enacted to ensure their safety. To truly experience India visitors must check out these exquisite creatures that are so near and dear to the hearts of the nation. For those enjoying their vacation in Bangalore an ideal place to catch a glimpse of these birds is at the Byalkere Peacock Reserve. >
As the city of Bangalore is full of development the Byalkere reserve is said to be the only piece of grassland remaining here. This makes a visit to the site even more important when staying in Bangalore. Not only is it ideal for getting away from the action in the city for a while, but it is also a bird watchers paradise as many species inhabit the area. It is an amazing experience for anyone to watch the many peacocks that call the reserve home in their natural habitat, and if visitors are lucky they may even witness the attractive birds showing off their exquisite trains, attracting not only the peahens around but also those who have the privileged of seeing this exquisite natural beauty.
The variety of other birds that can be seen here range from Marsh Harriers and Indian Rollers to Kestrel and Siberian Stone Chats. These many birds are best seen at dawn, making the early hours of the morning the best time to head down here. The bird life at the sanctuary is thriving as there is protection provided for the various species and to ensure this safety, visitors must get prior permission from the forest department to enter the site.
