Panchthople Mahathund bird, which feeds on Dhupi and Salla seeds, was found eating bone kafal in Madi Rural Municipality of Kaski on Saturday. This bird, which is found at an altitude of 3000 to 4000 meters above sea level, is now found at an altitude of 1800 meters. Ornithologist Manshant Ghimire said that this bird, which lives in the Dhupi and Salla forests of the Himalayas, is now found in the thick forests of the mountains.

Bird world in turmoil

Peacocks found in the Samthar area are now found at the foothills of the mountains, he said. Last Baisakh, a resident of Swant in Annapurna Rural Municipality of Myagdi reported seeing a female peacock roaming in the forest The news found in the area has surprised the conservationists.

Ghimire, the president of Pokhara Panchi Samaj, says that the dams found in the Himalayas have started to descend in the plains. Generally, it is found above 2 thousand 800 meters. "They like to graze herbs in open places where there is no butane," he said, "but now they have been found in dense forests around the valley."

Although birds change their habitat in search of food, he interprets the fact that the birds of the plains are found in the mountains and the birds of the mountains are found in the mountains as an effect of climate change. "Birds are reaching the upper part to escape the heat of the lower part," he says, "When there is more rain in the place where there is a lot of food in the upper part, the birds there have fallen down."

Swargachari Ghimire, who came to Nepal to pick up a child from Sri Lanka, saw Mustang in Jomsom in 2019. He found this bird at an altitude of 1,400 meters at an altitude of 2,750 meters. Bagale Vakur, found at an altitude of up to 400 meters, was recorded three years ago on Fulchoki hill at 2900 meters. Yellow June Bakulla and Black June Bakulla living at an altitude of 250 meters were found in Nureni Lake of Pokhara at 700 meters last year during the bird census of Pokhara Bird Society.

The white vulture found in hilly areas has been recorded from Muktinath up to the height of 5,500 meters, said Dr. Tulsi Subedi, president of Nepal Ornithologists' Association. He says birds are changing their habitat due to changes in diet as the temperature drops. "When the temperature drops, there is also a difference in the spread of the shrike," he says. He says, 'Whenever you need to get food, if you don't get it, fertility decreases. As a result, the number decreases.'

Last May 25, a new species of bird was recorded for Nepal at Lomanthang (3840m) in Upper Mustang of Annapurna Conservation Area. Nepalese ornithologist Shankar Tiwari met the bird during a walk and bird watching with foreign guests in the area. He took a picture and made a preliminary identification on his part. On Baisakh 31, he sent a picture of the bird with details to the Nepal Bird Archives Committee under the Nepal Ornithologists' Association for the sure breeding of the bird. After studying the received details, collecting opinions and suggestions from national and international ornithologists, the committee confirmed that the bird is new to Nepal.

The English name of the bird observed by Tiwari is White Cheeked Starling and the scientific name is Spodiopser cineraceus. This bird is found in China, Japan, Mongolia, North Korea, Russia, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Vietnam in North and East Asia. It has been sporadically recorded in Laos, Myanmar, the Philippines and Thailand.
