I have just shifted to bombay. Need to know some wildlife sites for bird photography and national parks around.

Hi Nitin,

There is the famous Borivali National Park which you can visit sometime. This site can give you some details - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sanjay_Gandhi_National_Park

Hi Nitin,
You could visit Sanjay Gandhi National Park, as Mrudul has suggested.
2 other good places for birdwatching are Karnala Bird Sanctuary and Uran, both are about 1 hour away from Mumbai by car.
Karnala has a very good variety of bird species, especially winter migrants around this time of the year. There is also a fort at Karnala, which you need to trek to. The top of the fort is a great place to see and photograph raptors. You can get there by ST bus.

Uran is made up mostly of wetlands where one can see migratory waders. You will need a private vehicle to go around Uran, since it is spread over a very large area.
