Andhra Pradesh is home to spot-billed pelicans, open storks, and spot-billed ducks. Wondering where these migratory birds can be found? You can visit the Uppalapadu Bird Sanctuary in Pedakakani mandal in Guntur city. Just 3.5 km from NH-16, this bird sanctuary, located on around nine acres of land, is a must-visit spot. More than 30 species of birds have been arriving here every year for the past 50 years making the sanctuary a special home. Spot-billed pelicans, openbill storks, white IBIS, glossy IBIS, little cormorants, and spot-billed ducks are some of the birds that migrate from Siberia, Australia, Bangladesh, Myanmar, and Pakistan every year between September and March. January is one of the best months for tourists to catch these beauties.
