Even as the world is trying to heal itself from the scars of ecological damage, Bhutan is emerging as an example to the international community, with more than 72 percent of its land still under forest and a great variety of rare plant and wildlife species. It has now become an ideal destination for the more independent traveler.
Bhutan with its great range in altitude and topography gives wide range of climatic condition making rich in avifauna. So far 700 species of birds have been recorded and many more are likely to be found. Around 464 species of birds have been recorded as resident in Bhutan and 14 species have been identified as globally threatened. These include White-bellied Heron, Phalla’s Fish Eagle Rufous-necked Hornbill, Grey-crowned Prinia and Beautiful Nuthatch. Bhutan is also a winter home for the Black-necked Crane. This wealth of birds makes Bhutan a paradise for bird watchers. Bhutanese society has also used birds in many aspects of their life. The Cheerful dance to done by the archers during a match is derived from the Blacked-necked crane’s courtship dance. Villagers use calls from some birds as timer.
