Bhigwan: 

Bhigwan is a small dusty town on the border of Pune and Solapur district in Central Maharashtra, in India. It is located on the Pune-Solapur Highway around 105 km from Pune on the backwaters of Ujani dam. Bhigwan is famous for birdwatching especially flamingo and wildlife photography. It is also known as mini Bharatpur.

At Bhigvan, many kinds of ducks, ducks, egrets, raptors and waders along with flocks of hundreds of flamingos can be seen. Variety of birds at Bhigwan gives of a sighting of almost all the prime bird species there and also creates great photographic opportunities for wildlife photographers. At times, 1,000-1,200 flamingos are seen. The low rains and low water level has now reduced the number of flamingos over some years. It is a favourite spot for migratory birds, with more than 230 species found here.

The bird generally migrates via marine routes and adult females depart from the breeding grounds.
