Bhutan Birdwatching Tour

Bhutan is a paradise for bird lovers and ornithologists. Over 670 species of birds have been recorded and many more are yet to be discovered. Around 50 species of the known birds are winter migrants. These include ducks, waders, birds of prey, thrushes, finches and buntings. The partial migrants to Bhutan include cuckoos, swifts, bee-eaters, warblers and flycatchers. The country harbors more than 16 species of vulnerable birds. They are the Pallas’s Fish Eagle, White bellied Heron, Satyr Tragopan, Grey bellied Tragopan, Ward’s Trogaon, Blyth’s King Fisher, Rumped Honey Guide, Purple Cochoa, Rufous Throated Wren Babbler, Red headed Parrot Bill, Chestnut breasted Partridge, Blyth’s Trogon, Wood Snipe, Dark Rumped Swift, Rufous necked Hornbill, Grey crowned Prinia and the Beautiful Nuthatch all of which breed in Bhutan.

Bhutan is also home to ten species of birds that are in danger of extinction, including the Pall'as Fish eagle, rufous necked hornbill, white bellied heron, and the rare black-necked crane, which breed in Tibet and then migrate over the Himalayas to Bhutan to spend their winter. They can be spotted in Phobjikha in Western Bhutan, Bumthang in Central Bhutan and in Bomdeling in Eastern Bhutan. They migrate to these winter roosting places in the months of October to March each year.

The main reason why Bhutan has many birds is mainly due to its large areas of intact habitat and other ecosystem. For example, presence of hornbills indicate the availability of good old forest, ibis bill and forktail indicate good river water quality and increasing arrival of black necked cranes in Bhutan indicate good quality of wetland and river ecology. You name any bird found in alpine, fir, cool broadleaf, warmbroad leaf or grassland, we can show you with great confidence. Tell us what species you want to see, accordingly we can tailor make your birding trip to make it a most rewarding and memorable trip of your life. Birding in Bhutan can be a greatest treat to someone who has passion for birding. You may also discover new records as many of species are not yet recorded in Bird Book of Bhutan.

Though birds are seen all year round, spring provides the best birding experience for the birders as it is breeding season for the birds.
