Over 30 species of birds are a part of our daily life at Deo Bagh. Along with large families of India's national bird the Peacock, a host of others have made this 'Bagh' their home. They are our pride and we guard them zealously.
Sparrows seem to be wiped out from India but we at Deo Bagh seem to be doing something quite right as you may spot these too along with the following:
Please help us protect them and enjoy being in their midst. You can get binoculars at the reception!
Wear boots/shoes (no open chappals/sandals) and do not go into the shrubbery. One of the reasons why we only clear the main walkways and not under trees and in the fields is for birds to lay their eggs and some nest there too!
Also you can enjoy the flora- we are making an exhaustive list of trees, shrubs and creepers on the 25 acre campus.
The old cenotaphs are full of bats which have their own charm but the stink is not acceptable and as we shall make them more approachable the bats will sadly have to go. It’s a constant balance which one needs to maintain with us humans and flora and fauna. Our bee boxes have also been sent off to Dehra Dun as we didn’t want guests accidentally stung but we plan to bring in the most delicious honey from our very hard working bees for sale for our temple trust.
At night if you quietly wander around the fields you may see a delightful parade of civet cats. And of course the quite rare spotted owls.
