Maguri-Motapung Beel of Tinsukia District is a wetland complex which is a part of the Dibru Saikhowa Important Bird Area (IBA IN-AS-13) but located just outside the Dibru Saikhowa National Park and Biosphere Reserve. ‘Beel’ is the local name for a lake with marshy areas at the edges. Maguri-Motapung Beel is located in the south bank of the Dibru River, which is a channel of the mighty Brahmaputra River. The Dibru Saikhowa National Park is located in the northern bank of the Dibru River. The Beel is connected to the Dibru River by a system of channels and is very rich in aquatic life. Since the area is not protected, it is heavily used for fishing and grass collecting. However, it is still very rich in biodiversity and is important for conservation of waterfowl and grassland birds.
