Supa:

Supa also called Mayureshwar Wildlife Sanctuary is located very close to Pune and is worth a visit. Located off Solapur road about 15 km south of Chaufula Village and nestled in the dry belt, this sanctuary mainly comprises grassland and scrub forest. The Sanctuary spreading over 500 hectares is famous for the Chinkaras (Indian gazelle), Indian Wolf, Indian Fox, and Hyena.

Having open grasslands makes it an ideal location for photography. Supa also tends to be a good location for birds especially raptors like Bonelli’s Eagle and Short-toed Snake Eagle in winter. From atop of the watchtowers, scattered in the park, the landscape of Supa really comes to life!

 

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 the Ujani dam. Bhigwan is famous for birdwatching especially flamingo and wildlife photography. It is also known as mini Bharatpur.

At Bhigwan, many kinds of ducks, ducks, egrets, raptors, and waders along with flocks of hundreds of flamingos can be seen. Bhigwan gives a variety of sightings 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 favorite spot for migratory birds, with more than 230 species found here. One can also see Painted Storks, Bar-headed Geese, Demoiselle Cranes, etc. These birds can be seen in the winter season between December and March. The bird generally migrates via marine routes and adult females depart from the breeding grounds.
