At Koonthakulam Bird Sanctuary in Thirunelveli Dist of Tamil nadu, birds are part of the everyday life of the people in the village. The sanctuary attracts different varieties of migratory birds including the flamingo and bar headed geese from Siberia and Germany. But despite the people’s passion for birds, the sanctuary is a safe haven for the winged visitors.Birds have taken refuge in Koonthakulam for more than 150 years.

And for good reason: the villagers of Koonthakulam take great joy in the birds’ presence. They treat them like guests and pay careful attention not to disturb them. Bal  Pandyan,the watcher of the sanctuary Pays most attention to birds
