Bird lovers, have a field day with the 39 unique bird species in the Andamans!

 The Andamans are home to about 242 birds of which 39 are unique to the islands. The Ornithologists describe them as endemic birds that have evolved into distinctive species. The Andaman Islands have unique species of birds such as White-headed mynas, Woodpeckers with a white-barred black mantle and red crown, the fulvous-breasted woodpecker, olive-backed sunbird, Andaman swallow, Megapode, Nicobar pigeon and White-Rumped Shama which is known for its best singing. These attractions together helped Andamans to become a birdwatcher's paradise.
