Bhutan Bird Watching

By location Bhutan is one of the smallest countries on the planet-roughly 300 km large and 150 km throughout as the crow flies. Yet this little landlocked parcel of land has a variety of flora & fauna far above that of North America.

This consists of 700 species of birds several of which are exceedingly uncommon and on the edge of extinction. That is why Bhutan is progressively being called the birding capital of the Himalayas.

Species on the verge of extinction consist of the Imperial Heron, the White Bellied Heron and also the Black Necked Crane, which migrates to the warmer valleys of Bhutan in winter season from the Tibetan Plateau.

Pallas's Fish Eagle, Grey Bellied Tragopan, Satyr Tragopan, Yellow Rumped Honey guide, Grey Crowned Prinia, Rufous Throated Wren Babbler, Chestnut Breasted Partridge, Blyth's Kingfisher and Rufous Necked Hornbill are some of the jeopardized bird species that breed in Bhutan.
