Roosting Need for habitat management[ edit ] Some of the areas like Nannaj 10 ha close to mardi, hectare and Karamba also close to Mardi, 50 hectare were planted with exotic plant species like Gliricidia sepiumAzadirachta indica. Because of the dense growth of weeds like Hyptis suaveolens and Lantana camarathese areas became dense woodlands.
Pictures taken from Google Earth effectively shows how dramatically habitat has changed from scrubland and grassland to dense woodland. The idea of no tree plantain proposed by some and other are not proper there has to be some trees which are not tall and there has to be the proper grassland so that the bird can hide and fly.
If the camouflage is not there the bird has chance to fall prey to poachers.
Recommendations[ edit ] No tree planting - It is believed to be better to have less trees or bushes in the core areas than to have too many of them.
Maintenance of grassland - very thick and dense grasses are not preferred by bustards. In such cases thinning, cutting would be useful to maintain the grassland at the optimum suitability for the bustards.
These recommendations were included in management plan of the sanctuary but nothing much was done for the management of grasslands in Great Indian Bustard Sanctuary, Nannaj, Solapur.
Removal of trees by the forest department[ edit ] With reference to above recommendations in the management plan, Forest Department Wildlife Division Pune submitted a proposal to PCCF Maharashtra in for the uprooting and cutting of trees like Gliricidia and Lantana in Nannaj and Karamba areas.
Total 25 hectares of land was cleared out of trees, of which 10 hectares at Nannaj 10 ha area near Kale Talav and 15 hectares at Karamba near Mardi 50 hectare.
Trees like Gliricidia, Neem and Lantana were cut and then uprooted so as to prevent their regrowth. A total of 15, trees were uprooted from 25 hectares of land. The bustard was seen foraging and the observer continued to observe the bird for about 45 minutes in 10 ha from 7: Then the bustard crossed the TCM by walking and entered the Mardi hectare area.
The following species of birds have been observed in newly opened areas:2. Site Requirements Gliricidia sepium is a tolerate species suited to moderate altitudes (, m).
