Kokkrebellur Pelicanry in Karnataka is a reserve forest where migratory birds accumulate. These species choose Karnataka as their destination in the months of October and November. Such parks are essential for wildlife as well as for human beings. This is the place where people can be made aware of the world around us and need to care for other living beings. The birds make themselves conspicuous by their sounds. As soon as one enters the park they will be greeted by the loud noise of the migratory birds.
The pristine white pelicans add to the beauty of this small town. Otherwise an ordinary place has become a common name in the international travel world because of this bird sanctuary. Pelicans, however, are not always white. They can be brown too. With elongated and hard beaks and a short form they are a treat to watch. They perch themselves up on the peepal or tamarind trees and announce their arrival. The pelicans have painted stocks for company at Kokkrebellur Pelicanry. Here these birds build nests and rear young ones till April.
