Wildlife in Dudhwa National Park
The Dudhwa National Park is spread over 490sq km along with a buffer area of over 100 Sq km. Besides massive grassland and swamps, Dudhwa National Park is home to one of the finest Sal (Shorea robusta) forests in India. Some of these trees are more than
150 years old and over 70 feet tall. In 1976, the park had a population of 50 tigers, 41 elephants and 76 bears apart from
five species of deer, more than 400 species of birds, crocodiles and some other species of mammals and reptiles.
Dudwa National Park is a stronghold of the barasingha/ swamp deer, which can be spotted in herds of hundreds. India is the only country where this species of deer is found. It is interesting to note that around half of the total Barasinghas on the Earth are present in
Dudhwa National Park. Smaller than the sambar, the barasinghas have 12 antlers that collectively measure up to 100 cm.
A full-grown stag can weigh as much as 180 kg and measure 135cm. The coat of the animal is slightly woolly, dark brown to pale yellow, adapted perfectly to camouflage in the tall grasses of the area.
During the winter season the swamps of Dudhwa echo with the frequent wallowing of rutting stags. This is also the time for mock fights that entail stiff postures and shrill calls rather than the actual locking of the horns. With the onset of spring the herd gets ready to welcome the newborn fawns. With the passage of winter the Barasinghas shed the woolly coats. During this point of
time the fights amongst the male Barasinghas are minimal.
Besides the abovementioned animals, the avian life at dudhwa is a delight for avid bird watcher. The marshland of Dudhwa National Park is home to around 400 species of resident and migratory birds that include the swamp partridge, Bengal florican, great slaty
Woodpecker, plenty of painted storks, owls, barbets, woodpeckers, sarus cranes, minivets, etc.It is also to be noted that
much of Dudhwa’s avian fauna is aquatic in nature and found around the lakes.
