A small area, combined with a well-developed infrastructure, makes it possible for the most productive of Goa's birding localities to be thoroughly covered within a short timeframe without the need of lengthy travel, and given a couple of weeks it is possible to reach a species list of 250-310 comprising regional endemics, more widespread Indian species, and overwintering migrants.
