Kanha also hosts around 300 species of birds and the most commonly seen birds are the black ibis, bee-eaters, white-breasted Kingfisher among many more. The flora here includes over 1000 species of flowering plants. The lowland forest is a mixture of Sal and other mixed-forest trees. A notable Indian ghost  tree can also be seen in the dense forest. The view here is breathtaking and it  is always a pleasure to be here among the dense and beautiful forests of Kanha Tiger Reserve.
