There is an exceptional variety of bird life, both local and migrant species. A rich mix of forest, riverine and mountain species are sighted here all year round though winter months are especially good for migratory birds.
Dipper, Wallcreeper, several species of Forktails (the Spotted and
Little Forktail being the most common), Plumbous and White-capped
Water Redstarts and several species of Wagtails are the altitude
migrants you can see. The rich river habitat attracts Pallas' and
the Lesser Grey-headed fish eagle at dusk. The Brown Fish Owl is
more heard than seen.
Walks in the forest would reveal the vocal White throated and White-crested laughing thrush and the beautiful but aggressive Common Green Magpie. The Upper canopy should be scanned for the colourful Long-tailed Broadbill and Maroon Orioles, here one also comes across hunting parties of Blue winged minla, Black Throated Tit, Grey headed canary flycatcher, Chestnut bellied nuthatch and scarlet minivets.
Plain backed and the much sought after Scaly thrush prefer to forage
under Clerodendron undergrowth with dense Sal\Tree canopy here one
also comes across Khaleej pheasants. Oriental and Great Pied hornbills
are seen as they fly over their typical valley to valley flying
