Birdwatching in Bhutan is a sublime experience as it is a small sparsley populated country with a small towns that are frequently surrounded by untouched habitat.
In the valleys, the wide rivers provide excellent wintering habitat for the Ibis bill - that strange and enigmatic wader from the Tibetan plateau.
On the upland mires, Black-necked Cranes (the worlds least known Crane species) maybe encountered, prior to their North ward departure to their breeding grounds in Tibet.
Forests are the best-preserved anywhere in the Himalayas and other species we can seek include Himalayan Monal, Blood and Kalij Pheasants, Wall- creeper, Crested King sher, Great Barbet and Yellow Billed Blue Magpie.
We should come across many colourful minivets, fulvettas, minlas, yuhinas and sunbirds, and three species of forktails are possible.
Although birding is our main priority, we can take time to apprecia- te the Buddist culture and, in particular, we shall have several opportunities to see Dzongs, which blend the role of both fortress and monastery, playing a central part in Bhutanese life.
