Coorg: A Haven for the Novice Bird Watcher

This post has been written for Tata Coffee Plantations, Coorg and has been published on womensweb.in. Staying at the plantation was a very relaxing experience and led me understand and appreciate life away from the city. This is the first article about the trip to  Plantation Trails, that I am writing for Women’s Web.

I am a person who runs to the hills whenever life starts feeling too stressful for me. Coorg is one such destination that seems to have formed some sort of a bond with me which keeps beckoning me over and over again. We were invited by Plantation Trails, Tata Coffee to experience nature in its purest form at their heritage plantation bungalows.  To the hills in Coorg which are clothed in coffee and peppered with other spices.

We are not avid bird watchers but when you are surrounded by nature it becomes imperative that you make an effort to learn about it. It is said that bird watching is the theatre of nature. One of the experiences you can have at Plantation Trails is their well organised bird watching tour. This tour is typically done soon after sunrise to increase the chances of spotting a greater number of birds. Coorg has a very rich bio diversity, owing to the forests as well large plantations interspersed with many trees. These have become bio-buffers and also highlights the deep relation Coorg has with nature. Out of the 2060 species of birds found in India, 25% are found in Coorg.
