Discover the birds of Goa through the lens of Sanat Shirodkar

The Goan monsoons - it's a time of pure magic as the entire state transforms from its dry summer soils to one of abundant greenery and wetlands. That one time of year when nature truly reigns supreme (no pun intended) and reinstates its claim over Goa again. Forcing its human inhabitants to simply sit back and watch as the rain pours down to replenishes the region's diverse ecosystem for another year ahead.

And while the rains certainly do make an effort to cancel them out, the chorus of birds calling out in the morning is by far one of our favourite sounds. The monsoon season simply a kind reminder of just how wild Goa really is.
