Maithon Bird Club

The Maithon dam, a concrete-cum-earthen dam, was constructed on the Barakar riverabout 10.5 kms above its confluence with the Damodar river. It is spread over an area of 65 sqkm. The large quantity of water standing against dam creates a beautiful lake, we call it Maithon Lake. The lake and its surrounding area, with habitats including farmland, scrubland, hills and sandy bank, is one of the best birdwatching sites and is home to many winter migratory birds like great crested grebe, Northern pintail, sandpiper, stonechat and resident birds like little grebe, pied kingfisher, cormorant, Lapwings, pratincole.This place is home to Maithon Bird Club.
