Migratory Great Egret in Mumbai

Share This Article

Great Egrets are large migratory birds which flock to parts of Mumbai every year. These locations include Sewri, Vasai, Vashi, Airoli, Dombivali, Kharghar, Panvel and Vikhroli. The creeks and wetlands of Mumbai offer plenty of food for the birds during the months of September to March.
