Shaheed Chandra Shekhar Azad Bird Sanctuary in Nawabganj, The Shaheed Chandra Shekhar Azad Bird Sanctuary, formerly known as Nawabganj Bird Sanctuary, is a haven for bird enthusiasts and nature lovers alike. Located on the Kanpur-Lucknow highway in Uttar Pradesh, India, this sanctuary is a vibrant ecosystem that supports a diverse range of avian life. Renamed in 2015 to honor the freedom fighter Chandra Shekhar Azad, the sanctuary has since become a symbol of natural beauty and historical pride.

Spanning over 224.6 hectares, the sanctuary is surrounded by dense forests and features a lake that plays host to over 250 species of birds. These include both local migratory and residential birds, as well as those that travel great distances from regions such as Tibet, China, Europe, and Siberia. The sanctuary's strategic location makes it an ideal stopover for these migratory birds, some of which fly over 5000 km and reach altitudes of 8500 meters to arrive at this haven.

Visitors to the sanctuary can expect to see a variety of birds, such as the sarus crane, painted stork, peafowl, and the Indian roller. The sanctuary is not just a birdwatcher's paradise but also a refuge for several reptile species, including cobras, vipers, kraits, rat snakes, and water snakes. A deer park within the sanctuary's bounds provides a home for spotted and barking deer, adding to the biodiversity and appeal of the area.

The sanctuary was designated as a Ramsar Wetland in 2019, underscoring its significance as a wetland of international importance. This designation is a testament to the sanctuary's role in conserving biodiversity and sustaining the ecological balance of the region.

For those planning a visit, the sanctuary offers a guesthouse with lodging facilities, a restaurant, and a children's park, ensuring a comfortable and educational experience for all ages. The best time to visit is during the winter months when the migratory birds are present, offering a spectacular display of nature's wonders.

The Shaheed Chandra Shekhar Azad Bird Sanctuary stands as a tribute to the resilience of nature and the spirit of freedom. It is a place where the past meets the present, and where the flutter of wings reminds us of the delicate balance we share with our feathered friends.
