Dr Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary - Review
A mere 15 minutes over water by the Ribandar ferry crossing takes you to Chorao Island, possibly the country's greatest bird sanctuary. Kingfishers, eagles, cormorants, kites, and woodpeckers are not the only creatures you'll see here, but also otters and foxes and crocs. The island itself is a mangrove swamp, a thriving ecosystem. Crisscrossing these are small water-channels, which, if bird watching isn't your thing, you can journey through in a boat. Altogether the island is a tiny place, only 1.8 kilometres in area. Visit either early in the morning or 2 hours before sunset.

Dr Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary, Panaji Reviews
If you are not interested in beaches and parties,or fed up of them, you can come here. But never judge the place with its name. You will be extremely lucky if you find single bird here. Ticket seller will tell you the same before you enter there. You can walk through the forest for few kilometers to kill your time. You can take your vehicle in ferry for free, from Charo ferry. It's the best way to reach there.
Great place to watch and photograph a wide variety of birds. A transit home for many species of migratory birds, making this place popular among photographers and birders. The best way to enjoy this bird sanctuary is by boat. The official guides will take groups through the mangroves and water channels, and are knowledgeable about the breeds and behavior patterns of the birds.
It is a long patch of mangroves house for many rare birds. As we walk through trees, we hear sounds and chirping of birds. Bird sanctuary has walk over steps through trees and bushes. One has to use ship to reach sanctuary while traveling from Goa side. Entry fee for bird sanctuary is RS. 20.
The experience in Dr Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary was exceptional. The nature walk of one km in the bird sanctuary will remain in the.memory for a long time. During high tide all the birds go away. So for bird watching best time is from 6 am to 8am . At the time because of low tide in the mangroves birds come for their prey.
