Recently one month long field trip was conducted at Koshi Tappu
area in the eastern Nepal. The main aim of the visit was to provide technical
support to the Vulture restaurant management committee in Ramdhuni community
forest, where we have recently established community managed vulture restaurant
with the financial support from US Fish and Wildlife Service. Therefore I was
fully concentrated on the vulture restaurant work while in the spare time; short
raptor/bird watch was conducted around this area. I was amazed to see the Osprey
in this time of the year because they should be winter visitor here. Another interesting
raptor was Amur falcons which were picking up insects over the bare field
around Koshi Bird Observatory (KBO). KBO was established as a wing of Himalayan
Nature (non-profit organization- www.himalayannature.org
) to promote as a centre for bird migration, wetland and grass land bird studies.
This centre also provides accommodation facility for the field researchers. Therefore
researchers can use this centre as a base for their research.
