Nepal Raptor Migration Project- 2015

I am pleased to post about the final status of the raptor migration in 2015. Year 2015 was not good in terms of number of individuals as there were fewer records.  So far they have tracked down 33 species of raptors during the migration -2015 with total number of 6,892 individuals.
