Mandagadde Bird Sanctuary is an island located near the Mandagadde village which is 30 km from the Shimoga town in Shimoga district in the Indian state of Karnataka. The island spans an area of 1.14 acres and it is surrounded by forest and a river named Tunga.
Mandagadde is one of the 20 important sanctuaries in the country and attracts birds in large numbers between July and September. Several species of birds lay eggs on the island in sanctuary during July to September, with peak season of August. The birds prefer the top branches of the trees for nesting as the island is partially submerged by the swollen river during monsoon.
This sanctuary is a bird watcher’s delight, with the island being a perfect heaven for bird nesting with over 5,000 birds here during the peak season.A watchtower has been put up for viewing different species of birds. Boating can be taken for closer viewing of the nesting birds.
