From the Deccan Herald in India:
A safe haven for a rare bird species
From Kumuda H, DH News Service, Mysore:
This place for long had been facing a threat from poachers, as well as alleged illegal sand mining. However, the long-felt demand to conserve this site has finally taken shape.
The river bed with soft sand is an ideal place for nesting, where they build tunnel-like hole beneath the bed to lay eggs and raise chicks. These farmer-friendly birds come in hordes during breeding season – from January to May.
