Kokrebellur, about 80 kms from Bangalore where the migratory birds have made their first landing. The endangered spot billed pelicans have started to arive in this remote village. They seem to have a bond (an agreement of co-existence signed) with the villagers. The villagers say, its been like that for centuries now. The village got its name from these migratory birds which travel from thousands of miles, as far away in Siberia.
For now the birds have nested in two trees in the village. These are the first batch to arrive. As the seasons changes, more birds are expected..
