About this book

On the southern coast of Gulf of Kachchh in the Saurasthra region of Gujarat lies a small wetland ecosystem with multitude of ecotones so intricately merged that it creates a unique wetland ecosystem complex known as Khijadiya Lake and Bird Sanctuary in the Jamnagar district of Gujarat. Unlike many other wetland environment where bird sanctuaries have been created, Khijadiya is no exception but houses combinations of seasonal freshwater shallow lakes, intertidal mudflats, creeks, salt-pans, saline land, mangrove scrub and above all sparsely occupied human habitation around it. This study surveys the avifauna of this sanctuary.
