Kokkare Bellur is a small village, near Mandya on the Bangalore - Mysore highway. Outsiders will tell you its a bird sanctuary which it is not. No special rules apply here, the birds have chosen the land of the farmers to come to year after year.  The village is also popularly known as ‘Village of Storks’ because it is home to hundreds of painted Storks. The village is 87km from Bangalore and is surrounded by beautiful rock formations and forest patches making it a great trekking and camping site.

Emo: Kokkare village is on the banks of the river Shimsha. It is famous for Spot Billed Pelicans and the Painted Storks. I also saw many other birds like-Brahminy kite, Parakeets, Sparrows, Scaly breasted Munias etc.
