Unlike every year, Keoladeo National Park in Bharatpur may not be teeming with birds this winter. Thanks to the poor monsoons, the marshes in the sanctuary are dry and the birds are forced to go to wetlands in other areas.
The number of birds that have arrived so far this year is very small. Last year was a good winter when the park was full with birds, but the earlier years have seen similar situations when the birds had deserted the national park.
