Raptor Migration Summary- Thoolakharka Nepal, 25 Oct, 2013


Bearded Vulture (25 Oct 2013)

Still the Steppe eagle migration is not in a peak and we hope it will be in the coming day or so if the weather is good. In last days we had several vultures very close (especially pair of Bearded vulture),   
. Since yesterday we have lot of ground cloud and which is interrupting the migration pattern of eagles. Last update of the migration is as follows
