It's a birding paradise as you can see flamingos, pelicans, storks and also not to miss, wolves, jackals, foxes and hyenas

The salt marsh of the Little Rann of Kutch is a birding paradise and the last refuge for the Indian Wild Ass. Winter is one of the best times to visit — demoiselle and common cranes arrive in flocks; flamingos, pelicans, storks, ibises, spoonbill and a variety of waterfowl head this way as do raptors like short-toed eagle, buzzards and six species of falcon. Wolves, jackals, foxes, hyenas, jungle cats and chinkaras are other inhabit­ants of this astonishingly versatile ecosystem that’s part of a sanctuary that looks deceptively bleak. Travel with experts, such as the BNHS, if you want to know more about the fauna and why we need to preserve wildlife.
