Mandagadde Natural Bird Sanctuary

Situated near Agumbe in Shimoga District, Karnataka, Mandagadde is a small island on River Tunga and is part of the Shettihalli Wildlife Sanctuary. In July-October, after the breeding season, varieties of migratory birds flock on the trees, bare at this time of the year, offering a visual treat. The birds include egret, cormorant, darter and snake-bird. A high platform is built on the edge of the river for bird watching. Boats are available for a closer watch.

The Gajanur Dam and the elephant training camp at Sakrebyle are near-by places of interest. Mandagadde is 32 km from Shimoga en route Thirthahalli.
