The Gulf of Mannar: Bird species
The Gulf of Mannar is home to a diverse range of bird species, with over 100 species recorded in the area. Some of the common bird species found in and around the gulf include seagulls, terns, egrets, herons, and kingfishers. The gulf is also an important stopover point for migratory birds that travel between Asia and Australia during the winter months.
Around the Tuticorin region, some of the notable bird species include the painted stork, black-headed ibis, and little cormorant, which can be spotted around the mangroves and lagoons. The region is also home to the threatened Indian skimmer, which is known for its unique feeding behavior where it skims its beak across the surface of the water to catch small fish.
Despite the rich diversity of bird species in the Gulf of Mannar, the area faces numerous threats to their habitat, including pollution, overfishing, and coastal development. Efforts are being made to preserve the ecological balance of the area and protect the habitats of the various bird species that call the gulf home.
