The great Himalayas with the most spectacular physical features in the world are a home to some of the most beautiful and rare species of birds. The altitude differences coupled with climatic diversity and heavy rainfall make this region a unique home for some of the most beautiful and sought after birds in the world. Woodpeckers, barbets, hornbills, parakeets, cuckoos, pigeons and owls are not only plentiful but present in great varieties.
As a group, the songbirds contain nearly half the world’s bird species. More than 460 can be found in the Himalayas and about 360 of these can be found in a restricted area of the eastern Himalayas, which we believe makes it the location with the highest numbers of songbirds anywhere in the world.
The avifauna of the Himalayas is a large one. It includes birds found throughout the range, birds confined to the eastern or western portions, bird’s resident all through the year, birds that are mere seasonal visitors, birds found only at high elevations, birds confined to the lower hills, birds abundant everywhere, birds nowhere common
Nepal is exceptionally rich for avian fauna with a total of 871 species recorded in just about 200 years of modern ornithological research. The country’s wetlands, national parks, lakes, rivers and mountains offer first class bird watching in the shadow of the mighty Himalayas.
