Migratory birds in India have their peak in arrival in the winter season, i.e., October to early April.
Keeping this in mind, RSNH has already organized a 15 days Awareness Program on Migratory Birds in southern Rajasthan in the second half of Januray 2007. Mr. Satya Prakash Mehra (Sr. Project Officer, Bharatpur Field Office, WWF-India, Keoladeo National Park) and Mrs. Sarita Mehra (Secretary, RSNH) were the specialist of the program.
