world in recent years thanks to the dedication of the State Forest Department the forest and Wildlife have flourished the Tiger Reserve is a remarkable habitat a mosaic of dry deciduous jungles rich evergreen forests and high-altitude grasslands it is rich with biodiversity and is home to some of the planet’s most rare and beautiful species this is among those rare places on earth where Tigers roam the evergreen jungles the reserve is also a haven for spectacular birds while the birders are in search of that rare endemic Warbler to add to the checklist the flagship species here is the

hornbill can feed on fruits from up to 40 trees a day making them excellency disperses and rightfully earning them the title farmers of the forest the Don Daly area is abundant with fig trees and is one reason they are found here in large numbers the birds are so crucial to this forest that the area has been declared a hornbill conservation reserve while the hornbills contribution to the forest is remarkable their own life story is nothing short of a wonder the hornbills made for life and with it comes great responsibility once the female is ready to lay her eggs she finds a suitable tree hollow and settles inside with the help of soil seeds and her own droppings she seals a nest allowing only for a beak to come out this provides safety from other hornbills and predators but comes at a cost the female would be locked inside here for about three months she sheds all her feathers and turns flightless her only source of food is the male which comes several times a day to feed her and the chicks a threat to this mail means death to the entire family it is only when the chicks are old enough to leave the nest and fly that the female breaks open the nest a great sacrifice that

rivers in India she flows only 184 kilometers before she reaches the sea and in this short distance there are 70 dams built across her her unobstructed natural flow is only 8 kilometres the dams have submerged past patches of forest and displaced the wildlife there but the dams do provide electricity and also help in storing water for the dry months the reservoirs are teeming with fish life it’s not just the birds that take advantage of this but also the fishermen each morning as they set out to receive Carly’s bounty they almost never ever return empty-handed Carly also has a fun side to her
