Birds of Bhutan
Bhutan has now entered the birding fray and bird enthusiasts have now begun to discover the glories of birding the Himalayan country of Bhutan, where less intense farming practices have left swathes of habitat remaining, to now be marveled at, by tourists.
Bhutan boasts of both the alpine and forested plains which make it an ideal habitat for various species of birds, many of which will be in the full swing of breeding at different times of the year. Bhutan has been declared as one of the ten bio-diversity ‘hotspots’ in the world for its bio diversity and as one of the 221 global endemic bird areas. The rare and endangered Blacked-necked Crane that migrates from Tibet to Bhutan in winter in a group of 200 to 300 can be seen closely in Phobjikha valley in Wangdue and Bomdelling valley in Trashi Yangtse districts.
This trip will take us to the remote regions of eastern Bhutan where some of the most endangered species of birds still remain. The woods are especially rich in Oriental Dwarf Kingfisher and Eurasian Wigeon, Blackchinned Yuhina , Spotted Dove , Blackchinned Babbler, Himalayan Griffo, Slatybacked Forktail, Little Bunting, Blackbreasted Sunbird , Speckled Wood Pigeon.
This tour is a combination of Cultural and Bird Watching tours.
