‪I recently visited Manglajodi and yes the reviews on Tripadvisor really helped me. Especially reviews of Shantashil, Sibabrata and Vijay K helped me to take a decision to visit Manglajodi and its worth a visit. Most information about it is already there in the reviews but adding something from my side.
Its around 2-2-1/2 hrs drive from Puri. Madhu Behra (96912122456) is the right person for the boat. Really nice and cool person no fuss simple and very reasonable. The boatman was very knowledgeable. For birdwatchers its a paradise but even for layman like us it was a beautiful experience it was so peaceful. We could see so many variety of the birds here. The good thing was that the boats are manually driven but could still hear some motor boats when asked our boatman said that its of the local villagers which is allowed for them but for tourists the boats are manually driven. It takes around 2 hours in the lake (It will take you longer if you are a photographer or a bird watcher) for before entering the boat make sure you carry water and something to eat. Also there were not much options even before entering the boat as there were just 1 or 2 tapris having tea and biscuits and coconut water etc. One of the tapri had egg omlet. We also could not find good decent place to eat enroute to and from from Puri to Manglajodi. It took us almost 7 hours from Puri and back to Puri and could not find a decent place to eat so plan accordingly. I really feel that this place should remain like this only, commercialisation will spoil its beauty.
The water in the lake is 2-3 foot only and best time to visit is Nov to Feb when maximum migratory birds visit the lake.‬

‪Unbeliable experience. The review by Mr Vijau from UK was very helpful.
Connecting Mr Madhu Behra, who acts currently as an ambassador for protecting the ecosystem was our guide inside the wetland. Very very helpful person. His story reminds that of Valmiki Muni of Ramayan. You must pre book him (9692122456).
Best time to visit is early/mid January. Birds starts arriving from Nov .
Its better to have your food or seek help from Madhu jee beforehand.
You love birding or meditating... u ud lovevthis. Nearest Railway Station is Khurda Road. Its 70Km away from Puri/BBSR‬

‪A Bird watchers paradise. October was just beginning for migrating birds. November to February is the best time to visit. Nearby accommodation is the only challenge.‬

‪Its place for Bird Lover and Photographer paradise. We reached there around 9 am and got into a ecoboat. Our guide Ukala Sir has an excellent knowledge about birds and through out our 2 hours boat ride, he told us about various species of birds and their life cycle.

Its a place which is not yet spoiled by tourism business. So do not expect excellent roads and facilities. Be with nature and among the birds and hold a nice telephoto lens camera.

Thanks

‪I had called up Madhu Behera {9692122456} and Sanjay Behera for booking the boat ride. Sanjay also has his home stay accommodation in the Mangalajodi Village. Both the boatman and the guide were extremely informative about the migratory birds, My wife who is an extremely avid bird watcher was impressed with the extensive information provided by the guide during the boat tour. I have rarely seen such a huge collection of birds though we were travelling at the end of the season. We have visited several similar sites in India but I would rate Managaljodi as the best. I am lucky I chose to avoid the over hyped Chilka dolphin satapada tour and chose Managljodi instead. Just call Sanjay Behera on 9337810040 or 9090322190 and he will take care of everything. We spent around 1 hour at his home stay where we were treated very warmly by Sanjay and his family. The rooms though basic are very clean and well lit.

‪We went to the northern part of Chilika lake the Mangalajodi bird sanctuary to have a look at the wetlands. There is a samiti which has set up the conservation effort and made it into a tourist destination. We went by boat and with a guide who showed us the variety of birds. It was so peaceful and serene. We saw shiny black ibis, northern shoveler, terns, egrets, stilt, Godwits and many more. ‬

‪Visited Mangalajodi from the 22nd December to 26th December, 2019, just the right time to see the migratory birds in Mangalajodi, a part of the Chilka Lake in Odisha. Mangalajodi is not very well marketed. It has very very basic amenities but it is a haven for water birds. Our first entry into Mangalajodi water was on 22nd at 3 p.m. We entered a very basic small fisherman’s boat that had seating only for 4 people. We entered into the water of the Chilka Lake covered with hyacinth weed, wading through an avenue of tall null grass. We saw a variety of birds – Pin Tail Ducks with a total life span of 66 years, coming from the Northern Europe. A large number of Pond Herons studded all over the Hyacinth Weed – Black Tailed Godwit too were found in large numbers. We had never seen the Swamphen with such beautiful blue sheen on their feathers.
The vignette of a parade of Pond Herons with a cormorant with spread wings in its midst looking like a statue. We also saw a large number of Bronze Winged Jacanas and Black Winged Stilts. They are called stilts as their legs are very very thin and their body appears it is standing on stilts.
Towards the evening the lake was the most delightful. I never saw such a cacophonic sound made by a horde of Pied Starlings and Kingfishers. Also on seeing so may Swallows on the wood stumps in the lake one wonders how the phrase ‘ A single swallow never a summer makes'’ was coined.
The hyacinth weed has been recorded as a pest plant. We made a total of seven entries into the Mangalajodi waters. Migratory birds we saw were – Pin Tailed Ducks, Rudy Shell Ducks, Black Tailed Godwit, Temminck's Stint, Ruff, Marsh Sandpiper, Golden Plover, Small Pratincole, Oriental Pratincole, Black Headed Ibis.
We also saw Egrets, Indian Pond Heron, Grey Heron, White Throated Kingfishers, Barn Swallows and Brahmini Kite......If only Mangalajodi had good accommodation for birders to stay it would be another Bharatpur of India.‬

‪This is a bird-watcher's paradise. A great variety of birds - some of them migratory. Best time to visit is in the winter. The locals are also very helpful. We took a boat from the local operators, and also a guide. Very interesting tour, and a very helpful guide. The boat traverses across the narrow channels of Chilika, giving you ample time to spot and photograph birds. I got some great pictures!‬

‪This is a wonderful place in Odisha on the banks of Chilika lake in Odisha. We took a car from Bhubaneswar in the morning. It takes a bit more than an hour if you start at 5.30 am. Reena Sahoo from Mangaljodi Ecotourism met us at the Mangalajodi jetty and introduced us to the boatman and guide. The rates are standardized (Rs 1200 for two hours), so no haggling is required. If you want to hang out longer, you can pay more at the same rate. But two hours is plenty good.

The boats are gondola-like canoes, pushed forward by the boatman. It is very quiet, making birding very easy. In December, it can get cold with the winding blowing from the lake. So, take a jacket in case you need it. The guide carries a binoculars with him. I am not sure how useful it is for people who are not birders.

I got to see many species I have never seen before. These include Brahminy Duck (Ruddy Shelduck), Open Bill Stork, Glossy Ibis, Black-headed Ibis, Black-Tailed Godwit, Ruff etc. There were also huge numbers of fairly common Indian birds such as Purple Moorhen and Jacanas. It is better to bring a field guide or an app on the phone to make a definitive identification. The guides are sometimes too eager to make a positive identification. In addition, their pronunciation of bird names can get confusing at times.

P.S. It is not worth taking a boat trip in Chilika for birding. We took a boat from Barkul to take a peak at Nalabanda. Nalabanda is a protected space, so you need a really powerful spotting scope to see anything.‬
