Long-tailed Broadbill

Posted on Updated on

Psarisomus dalhousiae
Nepali Name: चित्रकुट Chitrakoot

Notes:
1. The species that makes a bird trip in Nepal awesome, first because of its scarce and local status and second well its really pretty.
2. Goes around in flocks, well at least during the winter at Nagarjun it does.
3. Reacts to playback, but doesn’t approach, keeping close to the forest canopy.
4. Supposedly, Chitwan in the Central Nepal lowlands is the best place to see these birds.
