Jhilmil Jheel CR


Jhilmil Jheel Conservation Reserve (JJCR), about 20 minutes drive from Haridwar, is renowned for swamp deer and the great diversity of birds. In the last few months, researchers have noticed about 120 bird species. At sunset, as the birds return to roost, there is a chorus of bird calls. There are threatened species too roosting here – the bristled grassbird, for instance, and species of vultures.

Many other rare birds like the paradise flycatcher, oriole, scarlet minivet, sunbird, crimson sunbird, leafbird, plum-headed and rose-ringed parakeet, oriental magpie robin, emerald dove, green pigeon, spot-billed duck, Asian open-bill, woolly-necked stork, four species of kingfisher and many species of ducks are in plenty in this reserve.
It is still unexplored birding area of Himalaya and new destination for birders those wish to explore the new birding area.

The dancing peafowl also can be spotted here. The male of this species, much more resplendent than the female, can be seen dancing to attract a mate. Insectivorous species of birds like woodpecker too are common. These birds feed on insects, mostly termites. The woodpecker thus is important for the health of trees, as termites otherwise feed on wood particles, emptying trees of cellulose and making them hollow.
