The Demoiselle Cranes of Khichan and the Man Who Brought Them There

What started initially as a few dozen visiting birds has today become a major migration with the number being recorded at 15,000 in 2010.

They return in constantly increasing numbers every winter.

A plot of empty land turned into a haven for birds. This is honestly the purest man to nature relationship one can ever witness.
