Freshwater Trees

Barringtonia acutangula, Freshwater Mangrove, Indian Oak, Indian Putat, grows on the banks of freshwater rivers, the edges of freshwater swamps and lagoons and on seasonally flooded lowland plains, commonly on heavy soils. It is called by Sanskrit writers Hijja or Hijjala. The fruit is spoken of as Samudra-phala and Dhātriphala or ”nurse’s fruit,” and is one of the best known domestic remedies.
The birds that you see are painted storks, Mycteria leucocephala, and cattle egrets(white birds)
