Trip to Sardarpur Bird Sanctuary 9th September 2012

Sardarpur Bird Sanctuary is located in Dhar district of Madhya Pradesh. Sanctuary is spread over an area of 348 Sq KM. The landscape is grasslands perched with small lakes.To my surprise though it is a notiffied bird sanctuary of the Madhya Pradesh Government but there is no formal board or entrance gate to this sanctuary. I was only able to see a painting on the school wall about this sanctuary. This is famous for the kharmour bird (lesser florican) which is one of the top 50 endangered species in the world. I was able to spot two kharmour. Apart from kharmour i was able to spot around 20 more species of the birds which are not commonly seen. Below are the pics of the birds spotted in this sanctuary except the weaver bird which i spotted at picnic spot near indore on Khandwa Road.
Birds Spotted were-
Bulbul, Red Wattled Lapwing, Egret, Kharmour, Southern Grey Shrike, Crested Lark, Ashy Crowned Sparrow Lark, Indian Bushlark, Indian Silverbill, Indian Cuckoo,Scaly breasted Munia

I will start writing other names after proper identification. Please help me in identification of these birds also-

    Went on 23 Oct 2014. Was told the Kharmours are not comming for the last two years. Very dissappointed. Hope the MP govt does something to bring them back.

    Sardarpur wildlife Sanctury was a huge disappointment. Even the locals don’t know where this sanctury exists.
