Bird Photography at Aksa Beach

Aksa is a popular beach and a picnic / vacation spot in Aksa village at Malad, Mumbai. When my parents first took me to this beach, it used to be very clean and least visited with a variety of snails and shells found here. It's not the same anymore but it's still a good picnic spot for weekends.

With many private cottages, hotels and resorts, Aksa is a popular weekend destination with youngsters.

Warning: From swimming point of view, this beach isn't safe as there have been many drowning incidences. Strong currents and shifting sand make the beach dangerous.

Last weekend my friend Bharat and I visited the small forest-like area at the shore of Aksa / Dana Paani beaches. I could catch a glimpse of birds like White-throated Kingfisher, Common Sandpiper, Red-whiskered Bulbul, White-browed Bulbul, Asiatic Koel and few more whose names I’m still searching. Sharing the photos of these birds below.
