do you also like to trek deep into the forests and look for birds, photograph them, identify their calls...
i have been into bird watching and feather collecting for a while now.. but haven't been very active... i would love to connect with other people with this hobby though

put down any exciting experiences here, or any birds that you have seen that make you feel lucky

The birds i've seen while walking in himalayas


Monal Pheasant
Snow cock
Lammergeisers
Golden Robin
Himalyan Griffons

maybe more but i cant recall their names :S

I guess i am more of a Animal watcher

i know i have told u this a million times but i'll tell it once again

i was always a avid 'Tiger' guy & in Corbett national park i saw this bird 'Paradise flycatcher twice & that's wen my luv for birds all began

p.s. Forest y the f*ck have u moved out of bombay in the monsoon wen 'SGNP' is calling us the most           the problem with valuing art is, till u dont understand it, it's worthless but wen u do understand it, it's priceless!!

^well your reply had already popped up in my mind when i was in the process of starting this thread.

I remember watching the paradise flycatcher with the ribbon in SGNP.. omg what a beauty. well, im gonna form some kind of a community here in pune. im gonna spread the hobby.. and theres lots of trekking to be done down here..

@LSD-25
I happen to have a monal feather [/Proud] (all thanks to sure smoke.)
also have a few griffon vulture feathers.. collected em from kheerganga when they were feeding on a dead horse. never had i seen so many vultures together so closely. such huge birds, such a beauty to watch them

apart from these, since you regularly visit the parvati valley, you might get to see a lot of different species of sunbirds, minivets, hoopoes etc. look em up if you find them fascinating enough

Hey FD, yes i am familiar with these birds in parvati but i happen to not remember the names of these..i think i should tag along with you guys for some learning.

Speaking of Huge Birds .. i happened to spot..some eagles in kumaon early this year, i was trekking all by myself in darma valley and there was a turn on the route with the wide valley below me..as soon as i took the turn this HUGE EAGLE flew past me..and i stood there for 5 seconds completely stunned, i think we exchanged eye contact.

I have never seen EAGLES in the mountains but this was the 1st, if you guys like these huge birds..head to bharmour valley and kugti in HP..they are all over the place.

Besides
All 3 of us should plan out Great Himalayan NP trek sometime next year...its a feast for bird watchers and i can happen to spot some fauna as well, especially those Black Bears.

@lsd-25
bro it must have been 'Golden Eagle' if it was really huge (but cant be sure)

they are quite common in kumaon plains & valleys


Sum really rare birds that i've seen in India
Siberian Crane (The last pair that visited Bharatpur in 2002)
Houbara Bustard (in zainabad gujrat, have seen them 6 or 7 times in my life)
Three Toed Kingfisher (name changed to Oriental Dwarf Kingfisher) (not that rare but quite uncommon in SGNP)
Indian Nightjar (again not that rare but very very hard to spot one, i can guarantee u that even if it's right in front of u, u wont be able to spot it coz it's so well camouflaged)
Osprey (uncommon & not that rare in India)
