The Grandeur of Migratory Birds Adds Endearing Beauty to Sukhna Lake

Migratory birds travelling miles take their sojourn at Sukhna lake and everyone in the region is rejoicing with the stupendous visual delight they are.

As far as from Central Asia, Eurasia, these avian visitors make Chandigarh’s Sukhna Lake their abode from October to March/April and the best time to witness the grandiosity is between 07:00 am to 09:30 am & 02:30 pm to 05:00 pm.


Why do they migrate?

When the climate in the region is about to become inhospitable, they fly to tropical areas. The urge to migrate at the appropriate seasons is evoked by both external and internal stimuli, variation in day length being the primary.

How they maintain their course?

Migratory Birds maintain their course from the angle the sun makes with the earth at the appropriate season, while nocturnal migrants are guided by the major constellations of stars. During cloudy weather, these birds often lose their way. Migratory birds also use two electromagnetic tools to find their destinations: one that is entirely innate and another relies on experience.
