Site description Telineelapuram is located c. 5 km east of Tekkali town in Srikakulam district. The Telineelapuram Gram Panchayat (village council) governs four villages: Telineelapuram (460 ha), Viswanadhapuram and Vemalavada (410 ha), and Srirangam (56.3 ha). Very large numbers of Spot-billed Pelican Pelecanus philippensis and Painted Stork Mycteria leucocephala breed in these villages, mainly on Prosopis chilensis. Some nests are also found on Tamarindus indica and Enterolobium saman. Common trees of human habitations, such as Azadirachta indica, Tamarindus indicus, Enterolobium saman and the introduced Prosopis chilensis, are widespread at the site.
