Verna Plateau and Batim Lake

Verna Plateau is one of the famous places in Goa for bird watching. It is famous for its Indian eagle owl which thrilled Goan birders as it is known to be a rare species and was a National headline few months back.

Goa falling in the tropical zone, has several diverse habitats: the Western Ghats, forests, sanctuaries, lakes, open fields, coastal areas- including beaches and mangroves. Each area is special in its own way and has a necessary ecological function. Together, they combine to make Goa a unique bird watching site.

Birds and Breakfast has been successfully operating since 1998 and it's founder, Mr. Lloyd Fernandes, is synonymous with bird watch and nature. His experience over the last many years shows it all. Birds and Breakfast gives you the best bird watching experience at the birding site for one of your most enjoyable mornings in Goa and beyond.

Enjoy watching various birds at the Batim lake. Witness Lesser Whistling Duck, Cotton Pygmy-goose, Purple Swamphen and both jacanas here. Comb Duck, Spot-billed Duck and Darter are also possible and the nearby saltpans can be good for waders.
