Bhutan is a paradise for birdwatchers and ornithologists. More than 670 species of birds are found in the Kingdom of Bhutan, of which around 50 species are the winter migrants such as ducks, waders, birds of prey, thrushes, finches and buntings, and others are the partial migrants: cuckoos, swifts, bee-eaters, warblers and flycatchers.

Not only this, It also harbors more than 16 species of vulnerable birds: the Pallas’s Fish Eagle, White bellied Heron, Satyr Tragopan, Grey bellied Tragopan, Ward’s Trogaon, Blyth’s King Fisher, Rumped Honey Guide, Purple Cochoa, Rufous Throated Wren Babbler, Red headed Parrot Bill, Chestnut breasted Partridge, Blyth’s Trogon, Wood Snipe, Dark Rumped Swift, Rufous necked Hornbill, Grey crowned Prinia and the Beautiful Nuthatch.

The country is also home to species of birds that are in danger of extinction: the Imperial Heron and the rare black-necked crane. The country is an important winter habitat for the rare Black necked cranes that are spotted in Phobjikha in Western Bhutan, Bumthang in Central Bhutan and in Bomdeling in Eastern Bhutan, where they come in large flocks in the months of September and October and fly back to Tibet between February and March. In these 15 days of birding tour, hotspots for birding in the seven major districts are covered including some must-see sights of Bhutan. The best season for birding is in spring (mid March to late May).
