Desert National Park is situated in the west Indian state of Rajasthan near the town of Jaisalmer. One of the largest national parks, covering an area of 3162 sq km, Desert National Park is an excellent example of the ecosystem of the Thar Desert. With sand dunes forming around 20% of the Park, the other landform consists of craggy rocks and compact salt lake bottoms, intermedial areas and fixed dunes.
Despite a fragile ecosystem, there exists an abundance of birdlife. The region is a haven for migratory and resident birds of the desert. Many eagles, harriers, falcons, buzzards, kestrel and vultures. Short-toed Eagles, Tawny Eagles, Spotted Eagles, Laggar Falcons and kestrels are the most common among these. Sandgrouse are spotted near small ponds or lakes. The endangered Great Indian Bustard is a magnificent bird found in relatively fair numbers. Birdlife in this sandy habitat is vivid and spectacular. Birds such as sandgrouse, partridges, bee-eaters, larks, and shrikes are commonly seen. In the winter, the birdlife is augmented by species such as the Demoiselle Crane and MacQueen's Bustard. The national park's other notable inhabitants are the Blackbuck, desert fox, wolf
and desert cat.
