Rajasthan apart from being a destination of magnificent forts and palaces, from a couple of years has become a prominent tourist destination for nature enthusiasts. Moreover, the state has turned into a bird lovers’ paradise after the renovation of  prime lakes and ponds. Given the spurt in the number of migratory birds at various locations this year, not just ornithologists, even ordinary birdwatchers and environmentalists are upbeat and are looking forward to the state being harnessed as a destination for bird lovers.

Birds in Jodhpur

Every winter Jodhpur attracts thousands of migratory birds from foreign lands, demoiselle cranes being vast in number. Khichan, a village in Phalodi tehsil of Jodhpur is known for a large number of demoiselle cranes that visit this remote area of Jodhpur every winter. This annual bird migration began with around a hundred cranes in the 1970s, when a local couple started feeding pigeons. Other villagers joined their efforts, and as of 2014, Khichan hosted over 30,000 demoiselle cranes from as early as August each year to as late as March of the following year.

Jodhpur’s  International kite festival was initiated by Rajasthan tourism department only a couple of years ago. But in such a short span of time, it has become very popular among locals and tourists. In the Jodhpur International Desert Kite festival, the most skilled kite flyers from India as well as cross borders take part in the competition to showoff their kite flying skills. A lot of excitement surrounds this festival.

The date of the festival coincides with Makar Sankranti on 14 January, and continues for three days. The venue is Jodhpur’s polo grounds, and for the duration of the festival, the skies above are filled with unique and colourful kites launched by local schoolchildren, released by the Air Force, and set aloft by participants in the contests. Contestants work hard to keep their kites aloft and also to disable their opponents’ kites. During the kite festival in Jodhpur, the sky gets filled up with kites of various colors and shapes. There is a huge enthusiasm among the people for this festival. The occasional uproar of the crowds on the snapping of the chords of others’ kites makes this day a cherished one for the people of Jodhpur.
