There is a large nature reserve (Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary ) on Chorao Island on the north side of the river which has mangroves with breeding herons and storks. Nearby Divar island has many waterbirds but is most popular for its regular evening passage of harriers flying to roost.

All the sites in this section are treated, in detail and with precise maps and directions, in my book ‘Finding Birds in North Goa’

If you have any information which you feel would help to update the book, please email me at and I’ll add your observations to these pages

The areas either side of the road by the football pitch are good for pipits and larks as well as the passing harriers.
