By Correspondent

GOLAGHAT, Nov 4 � With the advent of the autumn season, the famous migratory birds, the pelicans, have started coming to the Kaziranga National Park adding to its picturesque beauty.

To the surprise of many, pelicans have made a new colony on the banks of Koladuar beel in Agartoli range of the KNP in the last two years. In the winter season, pelicans give birth to their offsprings and gradually after their grooming is over, they fly away from the KNP after two or three months.

Pelicans have been building nests in Koladuar beel since 2002 and it is now becoming a permanent colony for the pelicans. Forest department sources said that the number of pelicans have been increasing at Agartoli range and thousands of nests have been made by these birds at Koladuar beel and Simolu Kathoni in Kaziranga National Park.

The forest manager of Agartoli forest range told this correspondent that from the first week of October, hundreds of pelican birds have come to different beels of Agartoli range of the KNP. Pelican birds extended their birds colony at Tamuli pather and Azikati areas and they are likely to make more nests at areas like Simolu, Koroi, Chatian. It is expected that the new colony of the pelicans would surely be a source of attraction for the foreign tourists during the current year.

The KNP authority should create proper environment for the pelican birds so that the tourists may be attracted by this type of birds. KNP authority has also eyes on the poachers to prevent killings of pelicans and other rare birds which have been roaming, staying in KNP.

National Sankalpa Divas: Along with other parts of the country, the National Sankalpa Divas was observed at Golaghat at the office chamber of the Deputy Commissioner of Golaghat. The oath taking function was conducted by Haresh Dutta, Addl DC, Golaghat.
