The three-day bird survey recently conducted in Arunachal Pradesh documented three new species – the Spotted Redshank, the Black-Headed Gull, and the Peregrine Falcon.
Organized by the Arunachal Pradesh Birding Club in collaboration with Ziro Birding Club in Ziro in Lower Subansiri district, the migratory bird survey was conducted at Swkhe lake, Borang Aji, Pigey Aji, Khogebo Aji, and adjoining areas.
According to reports, fourteen winter migratory bird species were documented during the survey. However, the Spotted Redshank was photographed for the first time in the area.
It is worth noting that every year hundreds of different migratory birds flock in the valley. To generate awareness among the local populace about these migratory birds, the Ziro Bird Walk was initiated in 2019 to conserve nature and wildlife, thereby lauding the diversity of flora and fauna along the region.
