11 Days of Birding Adventures

Eaglenest wildlife sanctuary has now come to be regarded as one of the hottest birding spots in the orient. Not at all surprising as it straddles the Himalayan as well as the indo-malayan across different elevations and habitats; this giving it an astonishing 500+ species. More than the sheer numbers its the amount of specialities here that make a mouth-watering prospect.

Apart from the Bugun Liochichla you can expect to see Temminck's tragopan, Hodgson's frogmouth, eight Wren-babblers (wedge-billed, bar-winged, pygmy, spotted, rufous-throated and scaly-breasted), Gould's shortwing, two Cochoas (Green as well as Purple), six Parrotbills (greater rufous-headed, lesser rufous-headed, brown, grey-headed and fulvous-fronted), Fire-tailed myzornis, 13 Flycatchers, three Tesias (chestnut-headed, grey-bellied and slaty-bellied), Gold-naped black-finch, golden bush-robin, rufous-breasted bush-robin and many many more...
