Guest Birds Of Bangladesh is the beauty of Beautiful Bangladesh. Winter Guest birds from the Himalayas and far away places like Siberia move to relatively warm swampy lands in Bangladesh to escape the freezing cold and feed on snails and tiny fishes, which are abundant during this part of the year in the rice crops in haors, baors and the swamps in the coastal areas. Guest Birds start arriving from early November and stay till March-April in the winter season.

Around estimated 500,000 birds, about 150 species. Mainly dicks travel to Bangladesh each winter. The wetland environment, some of the famous species that visit Hakaluki Haor include the great crested grebe, widgeon, egret, large egret, heron, night heron, and snipe. Every year around 130-180 type, migratory birds move to Bangladesh for traveling till a certain time.
The wetland hosts a tenth of all migratory birds that arrive in Bangladesh every winter. Hakaluki Haor[water bidy], the biggest lake in the country is spread over the Sylhet and Moulvibazar districts, which covers 45000 acres of land.
The arrivals of the flocks provide winter entertainment for tens of thousands of residents who travel to Sundarbans areas to watch the birds.
Bangladesh Bird Watcher’s Society and Natural Conservation Committee organize bird watching festival each year at Jahangirnagar and Mirpur Ceramic Lake. Jahangirnagar University has six lakes ort of thirteen where migratory birds found often. Bird lovers feed them in traveling time and photographers come in groups to take pictures from nature.
The country has its own 400 species of birds, the number falling rapidly as their habitat comes under attack from urban and industrial encroachment. The number of birds is also decreasing as hatcheries duck farms and other commercial activities thrive in the wetland. Besides, organized gangs of poachers hunt birds after mid-January when the winter chill and fog subsides.
In the last part, I want to give you a message for guest birds in Bangladesh. Guest birds are the beauty of nature and they come to Bangladesh for traveling and increase our environmental ecosystem. So, we should always keep them safe and free in the open-source nature!
