This area of rice-fields was exceptionally wet in 2009 but, in a year when most other sites had too much water, it was probably the best wetland we visited.

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

Siolim rice fields

Wednesday, 24 August 2011

Looking east from the causeway the distant areas had hundreds of herons and Open-billed Storks. This area is worth checking for flocks of Little Pratincole too.

The causeway not only offers views of waterbirds on both sides, it also has a number of wires that are popular with swallows, kingfishers etc

The shallow areas at the north end of the causeway were best for jacanas of both species.

This flock of whistling ducks could be seen from the road to the south of the rice fields
