siberian birds in allahabad sangam
The arrival of these yearly guests the Siberian birds at the Sangam in Allahabad heralds the onset of winters. With the onset of winters, these Siberian birds spread their wings to consider flight of 1000's of kilometres all the way from Siberia via Afghanistan and Central Asia.
Various species of Siberian birds migrate to wetlands in India throughout the winter season when their home grounds close to the Arctic zone freeze. With the temperature and other climate conditions suited for their survival and breeding, these migratory birds have chosen these water bodies as their winter abode.
The whiteness of the birds is dazzling on the waters of Ganga and Yamuna. These Siberian birds existing a mesmerising view at the Sangam throughout the winter season, as if waiting to take holy dip along with the pilgrims.
These birds map their route of arrival like a magnetic compass needle and would comply with the precise route on their way back residence. Sangam is hence a confluence not only of the three holy rivers, but also of cultures and our foreign buddies.
